#948 Siemens firmware updates patch SIMATIC vulnerabilities
Siemens has provided firmware updates addressing vulnerabilities in two popular products lines, the SIMATIC WinCC flexible, and the SIMATIC S7-300 CPU family.

The SIMATIC S7-300 flaw is a denial-of-service issue that could be remotely exploited to cause the device to go into defect mode, an advisory from the Industrial Control System Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) said. Admins would need to perform a cold restart to recover affected systems.

SIMATIC S7-300 CPUs with Profinet support prior to V3.2.12, and SIMATIC S7-300 CPUs without Profinet support prior to V3.3.12 are affected, Siemens said.
