The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued an advisory warning of vulnerabilities in several medical IoT devices that could lead to remote code execution.

Advisory ICSA-19-274-01, which has a CVSS rating or 9.8, covers the following pieces of equipment: OSE by ENEA, INTEGRITY RTOS by Green Hills Software, ITRON, Zebos by IP Infusion, and VxWorks by Wind River. The vulnerabilities include stack-based buffer overflow, heap-based buffer overflow, integer underflow, improper restriction of operations within the bounds of a memory buffer, race condition, argument injection and null pointer dereference.

All are described as exploitable remotely, requiring only a low skill level to exploit and public exploits are available. This is an expanded advisory with the original being issued by DHS in July.
