It has been said that Fortinet devices, also known as FortiAnalyzer and FortiManager are commonly affected by PSIRT ID. The findings have been a major breakthrough in the industry, helping experts to actually figure out the problem and deal with it in an accurate manner.
Confirmations show that public disclosure has still not been allowed as they are still in the process of confirming the code that has been affected. As per the reports of the Fortinet Guru, it is said that the information has been shared by Mr. Nifty on the Fortinet Reddit. As per the findings, it is said that it affects only FAZ and FMG systems. It may be noted that the patch happened in 5.0.12, 5.2.6 and 5.4.1. There has been no work-arounds so far. The threat level has been rated as medium (3.7), with an XSS vulnerability of client-side in their CSS code. It is said that the main reason behind why public disclosure has still not been allowed is because of the fact that it is in the process of releasing the latest 5.4.1 version. As a result, it is expected to overlap with the cases of PSIRT. Even with all that is going on in this industry, it is said that the Application control still stands as one of the top selling points of the Next Generation Firewalls and UTM.
A lot of individuals have reported that Fortinet leaves a lot of be desired because of the fact that it applies the UTM (Unified Threat Management). The need commonly arises when it is practically applied to the firewall. Unlike the other devices, individuals need to create a separate application sensor on their Fortinet device.
