San Antonio, TX – October 23, 2018 – Digital Defense, Inc., a leading security technology and services provider, today announced that its Vulnerability Research Team (VRT) uncovered four previously undisclosed vulnerabilities within the Arcserve Unified Data Protection platform. The vulnerabilities can open the door for potential compromise of sensitive data through access to credentials, phishing attacks and the ability for a hacker to read files without authentication from the hosting system.

The security fixes can be obtained through Arcserve.

Details of the individual vulnerabilities can be found on the Digital Defense blog.
