    Thanks and well done for coming up with a fix so quickly! I had this issue on our USG Flex 500 and I had to take a trip into the office to disconnect the WAN link and then power cycle and update to the new firmware. This seems to have resolved the issue now. Will more details be released about this DDOS attack?

    Hello, can you provide a working link for firmware 5.10 for USG20-VPN ?
    Direct upgrade to latest fails and all links through dropbox are not working due to too many accesses.

    We are unable to upgrade and solve the issue since we are on 4.65 and direct jump to latest does not work

    what I don't get is why many people on old firmware who never upgraded when they could? and then this happens and need to jump to the newest…

    Hello everyone,

    I read the official note you could see below.

    I undestand the first condition: DoS attack, so the firewall could not answer and you need to power cycle it (like some other users had to).

    I need to know how to identify if a remote code was excuted and if the firewall integrity is still guaranteed.

    Waiting for news.

    ________________OFFICIAL NOTE________________

    Dear valued user,

    We have detected severe buffer overflow vulnerabilities that could lead to operational disruptions during routine tasks. We strongly recommend users to immediately install Firmware ZLD V4.73 P2 or ZLD V5.36 P2 and thoroughly examine the security advisory to ensure maximum network security.

    This crucial update mitigates the severe vulnerability that could potentially enable an unauthenticated attacker to induce denial-of-service (DoS) conditions or even execute remote code on a vulnerable device.

    You could use DDNS on site to site and firewall VPN services to Zywall per DDNS as source FQDN

    Thank you. If you try the links in that page, they all point to dropbox and dropbox disabled them because of too many accesses: so is not possibile to download anything
