Imagine having a truly state-of-the-art firewall. One that’s recognized as being one of the best around. How would you feel if you found out that it was susceptible to penetration? You should feel better about things. Know why? Cause nothing’s truly secure. And knowing about the vulnerability is better than not knowing. What you should care about is how quickly your vendor responds to vulnerabilities.
OK, so, US-CERT’s reported this vulnerability in Check Point’s Firewall-1 NG with Application Intelligence which allows an attacker to penetrate by attacking in a particular way. The good news? Check Point’s already got a fix.
