The products see use mainly in the energy sector. They also see action on a global basis.

No known public exploits specifically target this vulnerability. However, an attacker with low skill level could leverage the vulnerability.

Germany-based PSI recommends users of affected devices update their devices to a version where this vulnerability is patched.

A fix for the vulnerability is available in the following software releases:
