Seagate, a popular vendor of hardware solutions, has a critical zero-day vulnerability in its Network Attached Storage (NAS) device software that possibly left thousands of its users vulnerable to hackers.
Seagate's Business Storage 2-Bay NAS product, found in home and business networks, is vulnerable to a zero-day Remote Code Execution vulnerability, currently affecting more than 2,500 publicly exposed devices on the Internet.
Seagate is one of the world’s largest vendor of hardware solutions, with products available worldwide. After Western Digital, Seagate ranked second and holds 41% of the market worldwide in supplying storage hardware products.
A security researcher, named OJ Reeves, discovered the zero-day remote code execution vulnerability on 7th October last year and, reported to the company totally in the white hat style. But even after 130 days of responsible disclosure, the zero-day bug remains unpatched till now.
