VERSIONS EFFECTED
  • WatchGuard Firebox II

DESCRIPTION

If a user sends a malformed URL to the
firewall's authentication service, which runs on port 4100 of the appliance, then the firewall will shutdown thereby denying service to users. A reboot is required to reestablish proper functionality.

VENDOR RESPONSE

WatchGuard is aware of this matter and has made a service pack available to correct the matter. Subscribers of WatchGuard's LiveSecurity should receive the pack via their subscription to that service.
