Thirteen vulnerabilities were found in the Ivanti Avalanche enterprise mobile device management solution. Ivanti has recently issued security updates to address the critical vulnerabilities. For those unaware, Ivanti Avalanche is software that allows administrators to centrally manage over 100,000 mobile devices via the Internet, facilitating tasks such as software deployment and update scheduling. 

The security flaws stem from stack or heap-based buffer overflow weaknesses in the WLAvalancheService. These vulnerabilities could be exploited by unauthenticated attackers in low-complexity attacks, requiring no user interaction, to achieve remote code execution on unpatched systems.  

According to Ivanti's security advisory, attackers can trigger memory corruption by sending specially crafted data packets to the Mobile Device Server, leading to potential Denial of Service (DoS) or code execution. To mitigate these risks, Ivanti strongly recommends users to download the Avalanche installer and update to the latest version, specifically Avalanche 6.4.2. The vulnerabilities impact all supported versions, including Avalanche versions 6.3.1 and above, with older versions also being at risk. 

The memory corruption vulnerabilities (both critical and high severity) are as follows:   

  • CVE-2023-41727 – CVSS 9.8   
  • CVE-2023-46216 – CVSS 9.8  
  • CVE-2023-46217 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46220 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46221 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46222 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46223 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46224 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46225 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46257 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46258 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46259 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46260 – CVSS 7.5 
  • CVE-2023-46261 – CVSS 9.8 
  • CVE-2023-46262 – CVSS 7.5 
  • CVE-2023-46263 – CVSS 7.2 
  • CVE-2021-22962 – CVSS 7.3 
  • CVE-2023-46264 – CVSS 7.2 
  • CVE-2023-46265 – CVSS 6.5 
  • CVE-2023-46266 – CVSS 7.3 

The Ivanti Avalanche vulnerabilities are coming on the heels of the company previously addressing two critical Avalanche buffer overflows in August, identified as CVE-2023-32560. Threat actors also exploited a third MobileIron Core zero-day (CVE-2023-35081) along with CVE-2023-35078 to compromise the IT systems of several Norwegian ministries.
