The analysts at usd HeroLab examined Acronis Cyber Protect application as part of their security analyses.
This revealed a vulnerability that allowed a potential attacker with network access to anonymously register with an Acronis Cyber Protect appliance. The attacker could use this access to gain access to the management interface and execute arbitrary commands on the appliance's host.
The vulnerability was reported to the vendor under the Responsible Disclosure Policy and was subsequently fixed. The advisory has been published in coordination with the vendor only now, in order to give the users of the application sufficient time to install the patched version. Detailed information about this advisory can be found here.
