Sierra:21 – Mitigating Vulnerabilities in OT/IoT Routers


Forescout Vedere Labs recently found 21 new vulnerabilities affecting OT/IoT routers. These vulnerabilities may allow attackers to steal credentials, take control of a router by injecting malicious code, persist on the device, and use it as an initial access point into critical networks.

OT/IoT routers are used to connect critical local networks to the Internet via cellular connections such as 3G and 4G. They are present in sectors such as energy, transportation, water and wastewater systems, manufacturing and healthcare. We see more than 86,000 potentially vulnerable routers exposed on the Internet – less than 10% of which have been confirmed patched against previous vulnerabilities.
