FreeNAS Security Alert: Upgrade now or restrict web GUI access by IP address

November 10th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Brian Adeloye of Tenable Network Security has found a vulnerability  in all versions of FreeNAS before  0.7.2.5543. With this vulnerability root acccess can be gained via the web GUI without authentication.

There are two solutions:

1) Upgrade to the latest stable version of FreeNAS – 0.7.2.5543:  https://sourceforge.net/projects/freenas/files/stable/0.7.2/

2) Restrict web GUI access to trusted IP addresses only.

For most people using FreeNAS in their homes behind a firewall this shouldn’t be an issue, but it is worth upgrading anyway just to be 100% sure.
