There are multiple vulnerabilities affecting Pro-face Pro-Server, a supervisory control and data acquisition/human-machine interface (SCADA/HMI) product.

The flaws include invalid memory access, buffer overflow, unhandled exception, and memory corruption, with proof-of-concept (PoC) exploit code, according to a report on ICS-CERT. All holes could cause a denial of service (DoS) and possible remote code execution.

These vulnerabilities, released by researcher Luigi Auriemma on his website without coordination with either the vendor or ICS-CERT, are remotely exploitable via specially crafted packets.

The vendor is aware of the issue and ICS-CERT asked the company to confirm the vulnerability and identify mitigations. No patch is currently available.

This ICS-CERT alert provides early notice of the report and identifies baseline mitigations for reducing risks to these and other cyber security attacks.
