A vulnerability has been reported in Check Point products, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to the device's web interface allowing users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. add users or change the administrator's password by enticing a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious site.
The vulnerability affects products with Embedded NGX versions prior to 7.0.45.
Solution: Update to Embedded NGX version 7.0.45.
