Forescout Research Labs has recently published a report from a study called AMNESIA:33, which performed a security analysis of seven open-source embedded TCP/IP stacks. The study discovered 33 new vulnerabilities in four of the seven analyzed stacks. For more details see the White Paper.
Our routers use the Linux Kernel TCP/IP stack, which is not affected by the listed vulnerabilities. Should you have more questions, please contact your Regional Support.
The new firmware version is out!
Being a patchlevel release it brings mainly a number of improves and updates. This includes security fixes for 1 critical, 5 high severity, 2 medium severity and 1 low severity vulnerabilities.

We are pleased to announce that User Modules for cellular routers are newly called Router Apps. Advantech Router Apps are now available for download at Engineering Portal.
Router Apps add extended functions to Advantech Cellular Routers,with each app tailored to a specific solution. We benefit from extensive skills gained through implementing an array of SW features into a variety of devices over the past years. We categorized all Router Apps (IIoT, Industrial ...
Remote monitoring tools inform administrators about the overall system health, performance, and potential issues. This improves reliability and security of your network.
We just released guidelines for remote monitoring of Advantech cellular routers. This document lists all supported remote monitoring protocols and introduces various tools that can be used to remotely monitor Advantech routers. The combination of protocols and tools need to be carefully selected based on your needs as there is no single protocol that can monitor everything and no single tool that supports all protocols.
We released a Router App (User Module) with a Zabbix Agent. This can be used to integrate Advantech Cellular Routers with the Zabbix Monitoring System and securely monitor parameters that are not available via SNMP, such as CPU load, memory consumption, local time, or changes to the router configuration files. To simplify integration with the Zabbix server via either SNMP or the Agent we also released several Templates with all supported SNMP parameters and important agent-based parameters.
Detailed description of the Templates and the User Module itself, including ...
We just released a new version of R-SeeNet, which fixes an SQL injection vulnerability and also the SNMP trap processing for ICR-1601. We encourage all R-SeeNet users to upgrade.
R-SeeNet is the software system used for remote monitoring of Advantech cellular routers. For more information, please see the R-SeeNet website.
Another firmware version is released.
Being a patchlevel release it brings mainly a number of improves and updates. There are no security fixes in this version.
A few highlight points from 6.2.6 (as always, you are welcome to check out the Release notes):
We released a user module with NetFlow/IPFIX probe and collector. The module captures a source and a destination IP address of each observed network communication and the amount of data exchanged. This can be used by network monitors such as PRTG to identify unusual traffic flows caused by misconfigurations, security incidents or policy violations.
Detailed description of the module configuration and operation can be found in the NetFlow/IPFIX Application Note.
The User Modules can be downloaded here.
