Zyxel is committed to continuously updating your devices for important maintenance information. This latest release fixes all-round functions of ATP and USG FLEX series. If the device is using the App Patrol signature release V1.0.0.20220310.0 on 3/11/2022, DO NOT reboot the device until you have upgraded the device firmware to the latest ZLD5.21 Patch1.

Note:

- For firmware version earlier than ZLD5.00, please manually update the App Patrol signature before upgrading to ZLD5.21 P1  

- For ZLD5.00 and later version, you can upgrade firmware directly to ZLD5.21P1 to resolve the issue.


ZLD5.21 Patch1 fixes the following security issues:

1.     App Patrol signature V1.0.0.20220310.0

Fixed a parsing error in the Application signature V1.0.0.20220310.0. It may drive an error condition led to connectivity disruption.

 

2.     Zyxel-SI-1392, Zyxel-SI-1400

An authentication bypass vulnerability was found in the CGI program of ZLD firmware that could allow an attacker to bypass the web authentication and obtain administrative access of the device.  

 

Affected Version: ATP Series: ZLD V4.32 Patch0 through ZLD V5.20 Patch0/USG FLEX Series: ZLD V4.50 Patch0 through ZLD V5.20 Patch0/VPN Series: ZLD V4.30 Patch0 through ZLD V5.20 Patch0

A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in the CGI program of ZLD firmware that could allow an attacker to execute malicious scripts through the web interface.

    When will this show as available on Nebula?

    We still have units that once recovered and booted check in to Nebula and download 5.21(ABUH.0) and then reboot and get stuck again.

    Currently there is seemingly NO FIX for Nebula units.

    As i see many people complaining about the App Patrol signature issue, do you suggest to disable app control before proceding to update the firmware? if so, how can i do this via the web interface? I really want to avoid to be trapped in this issue. Thanks in advance...

    Hi @xkp68
    If your device updated Application Patrol signature V1.0.0.20220310.0. It may drive device unable to boot successfully.
    If device still alive, you can upgrade to ZLD5.21 Patch1 directly.
    If device is unable to boot up anymore, you can follow recover steps to boot up your system first and then upgrade to 5.21 Patch1 firmware.
