Nasty vulnerability in Fortinet firewalls, proxies abused in real-world attacks


Fortinet has patched a high-severity vulnerability in multiple services that allowed threat actors remote access and was being abused in the wild. 

In a security advisory published late last week, the company described the flaw as an authentication bypass on the admin interface, allowing unauthenticated individuals to log into FortiGate firewalls, FortiProxy web proxies (opens in new tab), and FortiSwitch Manager on-prem management instances.
