White Paper Addresses Vulnerabilities of Iconics Genesis Platform
In the paper, Eric Byres, chief technology officer of Byers Security Inc., and Joel Langill cover six measures that Iconics Genesis customers can take to protect their system from these vulnerabilities. The authors advise users of other HMI products to consider similar measures.
Topics covered include vulnerability details, affected systems, detection and removal, mitigations and compensating controls, frequently asked questions and references.
At minimum, the vulnerabilities can be used to crash control system servers, causing a denial-of-service condition and loss of view, say the report's authors. A more experienced attacker could exploit them to gain system access and then inject potentially malicious code.
