Have you heard that F5 has patched a severe security vulnerability in its BIG-IP product? The bug can be exploited by attackers over the Internet to gain access to the TMUI component, which runs on top of a Tomcat server on BIG-IP's Linux-based operating system.
F5 Networks, one of the world's largest provider of enterprise networking gear, has published a security advisory this week warning customers to patch a dangerous security flaw that is very likely to be exploited.
The vulnerability impacts the company's BIG-IP product. These are multi-purpose networking devices that can work as web traffic shaping systems, load balancers, firewalls, access gateways, rate limiters, or SSL middleware.
