Nineteen security advisories issued by Siemens detail 46 security vulnerabilities, with two advisories describing critical bugs. Siemens' SIMATIC CP 1543-1 communicator processor is being impacted by three critical and high-severity flaws, which could be exploited to achieve arbitrary code execution. Threat actors could also remotely abuse a critical flaw and a high-severity bug in its SIMATIC eaSie digital assistant to facilitate arbitrary request delivery and a denial-of-service condition. Numerous vulnerabilities in SCALANCE X switches could also be leveraged in DoS or brute-force attacks. Meanwhile, Schneider Electric detailed 13 bugs, one of which is a high-severity SpaceLogic C-Bus Home Controller OS command injection flaw. Three high-severity vulnerabilities in some Schneider Electric OPC UA and X80 advanced RTU communication modules could also be leveraged in DoS attacks, according to the company.
