There is a report of SQL Injection vulnerability with proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code affecting the Navis WebAccess application, according to a report from ICS-CERT.
This remotely exploitable vulnerability ended up exploited against multiple U.S.-based organizations, resulting in data loss.
There is a campaign of activity affecting maritime transportation sector members, according to ICS-CERT, which wants to provide awareness to critical infrastructure organizations along with making available indicators of compromise (IoCs) and mitigation recommendations.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the SQL database. There is a direct threat to the data stored within the system as well as systems that may be related to and/or depend on the system in question.
