Poc Exploit Released for Fortra Filecatalyst SQL Injection Vulnerability

A Proof-of-Concept (PoC) exploit has been released for a critical SQL Injection vulnerability in Fortra FileCatalyst Workflow.

This vulnerability could potentially allow attackers to modify application data.

This vulnerability, CVE-2024-5276, affects all versions of Fortra FileCatalyst Workflow from 5.1.6 Build 135 and earlier.

CVE-2024-5276-Vulnerability Details

The SQL Injection vulnerability, discovered on June 18, 2024, is classified under CWE-20 and CWE-89.

This attack exploits target software that constructs SQL statements based on user input.

An attacker can craft input strings so that when the target software constructs SQL statements based on the input, the resulting SQL statement performs actions other than those the application intended.

This vulnerability results from the failure of the application to validate input appropriately.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
