# Schneider Electric ConneXium Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
Independent researcher Nir Giller has identified a buffer overflow vulnerability in Schneider Electric’s ConneXium firewall product. Schneider Electric is developing a firmware update to mitigate this vulnerability.
This vulnerability is remotely exploitable.
### AFFECTED PRODUCTS
The following ConneXium firewalls are affected:
•TCSEFEC23F3F20 all versions,
•TCSEFEC23F3F21 all versions,
•TCSEFEC23FCF20 all versions,
•TCSEFEC23FCF21 all versions, and
•TCSEFEC2CF3F20 all versions.
An exploit of this vulnerability could result in a buffer overflow that could allow an attacker to execute code during the SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) login authentication process.
Impact to individual organizations depends on many factors that are unique to each organization. NCCIC/ICS-CERT recommends that organizations evaluate the impact of this vulnerability based on their operational environment, architecture, and product implementation.
Schneider Electric’s corporate headquarters is located in Paris, France, and maintains offices in more than 100 countries worldwide.
