CVE-2023-39336: SQL Injection Vulnerability in Ivanti Endpoint Manager

Share :

On January 4, 2024, Ivanti published a security advisory regarding a SQL injection vulnerability in their Endpoint Manager (EPM) solution, CVE-2023-39336. The vulnerability was rated with a CVSS of 9.6, as an attacker with access to the internal network can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary SQL queries without authentication. The potential security implications include the attacker gaining control over machines running the EPM agent and, in some cases, remote code execution (RCE) on the core server. 

At this time Arctic Wolf has not observed active exploitation of this vulnerability in the wild or a proof of concept (PoC) exploit. Threat actors previously exploited another vulnerability in Ivanti EPM in 2023, and considering the historical targeting of various other Ivanti products by threat actors (as indicated by CISA’s Known Exploited Vulnerabilities catalog), we assess that threat actors may attempt to exploit CVE-2023-39336 in the near-term.
