    A 5G wireless gateway tailored for industrial internet of things (IoT), retail point-of-sale and enterprise redundancy applications is riddled with vulnerabilities, include two critical bugs that allow remote code-execution (RCE) and arbitrary command-injection.

    The Sierra Wireless AirLink ES450 LTE gateway (version 4.9.3) has 11 different bugs, which could be exploited for RCE, uncovering user credentials (including the administrator’s password) and other scenarios, according to Cisco Talos, which found the issues. Sierra Wireless has issued an update and administrators are encouraged to apply it.
