Weekly Vulnerability Summary by CISA: Ivanti Avalanche, Apache Dubbo, OpenSSH, and More

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released a new vulnerability summary for the latest security vulnerabilities. The summary for the week of December 18 includes numerous critical vulnerabilities and may constitute the majority of the latest vulnerabilities assigned a CVE in 2023.

For an in-depth look at the exploited CVEs of 2023, explore our blog post titled “2023 Review of the CISA Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) Catalog.” It provides yearly statistics and a detailed examination of types, targeted vendors, and more information about the vulnerabilities added to CISA’s exploited list in 2023.

Returning to our subject, in this blog post, we will outline some of the critical vulnerabilities featured in the latest CISA vulnerability summary that could impact organizations’ digital resilience. 

In this overview of the weekly CISA vulnerability summary, we will delve into instances such as Ivanti Avalanche, affected by over a dozen critical vulnerabilities, Apache Dubbo facing deserialization vulnerabilities, Projectworlds and Kashipara projects that are vulnerable to SQL injection, and another set of critical vulnerabilities in various WordPress plugins, and more. 

As we delve into this weekly roundup, our goal is to highlight the most pressing threats requiring immediate attention and proactive mitigation efforts.
