Urgent/11 - 11 Zero Day Vulnerabilities Impacting VxWorks, the Most Widely Used Real-Time Operating

In the last several days, we notice a large campaign advising about discovered vulnerabilities concerning VxWorks operating system. some publications claim that the vulnerabilities effect 200 million devices, while other claim it effect up to 2 billion devices. The danger of these vulnerabilities stand in the fact that this operating system is very common in use in s variety large and completely different sectors. in addition, there is no clear visibility which devices exactly uses this operating system. Even the researcher which found the vulnerabilities https://armis.com/urgent11/#/devices are unable to provide exact and detailed list about the effected devices. this lack of visibility pose real difficulty for the users attempting to mitigate this risks.

I would be more than happy to get your comments and thoughts about the issue

thanks for the update, excellent information

The concern of the federal agencies is understood, due to the fact the approx. 2 billion devices are effected by these vulnerabilities globally. The main problem with Urgent/11 is the fact that mos users are not even aware that they own or operate devices using VxWorks operating system. further not all vendors already released patches for the urgent/11 although it was published about 2 month ago.

we will keep on following the issue and will update in Checkmates
