Issues Resolved


Previously, a critical vulnerability (CVE-2018-9091) in the LoadMaster Operating System (LMOS) related to Session Management could allow an unauthorized, remote attacker to bypass security protections, gain system privileges, and execute elevated commands such as ls, ps, cat, and so on, thereby compromising the system. Through this remote execution, in certain cases, exposure of sensitive system data such as certificates, private keys, and other information may be possible.
Now, this vulnerability has been mitigated against with more stringent security checks. Further information can be found here: Mitigation For Remote Access Execution Vulnerability.
