The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has warned of active exploitation of two security flaws impacting Zabbix open-source enterprise monitoring platform, adding them to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog.

On top of that, CISA is also recommending that Federal Civilian Executive Branch (FCEB) agencies patch all systems against the vulnerabilities by March 8, 2022 to reduce their exposure to potential cyberattacks.

Tracked as CVE-2022-23131 (CVSS score: 9.8) and CVE-2022-23134 (CVSS score: 5.3), the shortcomings could lead to the compromise of complete networks, enabling a malicious unauthenticated actor to escalate privileges and gain admin access to the Zabbix Frontend as well as make configuration changes.
