Ivanti’s Security Crisis

CVE-2024-22024 adds to a series of Ivanti security flaws. Previous vulnerabilities have sparked widespread exploitation attempts, particularly concerning given Ivanti’s prominent use in government sectors. As a result, CISA instructed all US government agencies to disconnect Ivanti Connect Secure and Policy Secure VPN appliances by February 2, 2024.

While Ivanti has been releasing mitigations and patches, questions linger regarding the resilience of its products, underscoring the importance of proactive security measures in today’s threat landscape.

Furthermore, cybersecurity expert Kevin Beaumont raised concerns about the outdated software used in Ivanti products.
