Patch Now: Barracuda Email Security Gateway (ESG) Appliance Zero-Day Vulnerability

On June 6, 2023, Barracuda Networks released an updated vulnerability notice instructing affected customers to replace their on-prem Email Security Gateway (ESG) appliances.

Barracuda became aware of suspicious network activity from on-prem Barracuda ESG appliances on May 18, 2023. An investigation supported by cybersecurity firm Mandiant discovered a vulnerability, CVE-2023-2868, in an attachment screening module, which Barracuda remotely patched.

Barracuda has identified affected appliances and released a list of Indicators of Compromise (IOC). As of June 6, Barracuda’s latest guidance is to have any known affected ESG appliances decommissioned and replaced with a new Barracuda appliance.

This vulnerability is suspected of being exploited as early as October 2022 and has been used to deploy malware containing backdoor capabilities.
