Description

Overview

Affected versions of product-monitor insecurely download an executable over an unencrypted HTTP connection.

In scenarios where an attacker has a privileged network position, it is possible to intercept the response and replace the executable with a malicious one, resulting in code execution on the system running product-monitor.

Recommendation

Update to versions 2.2.5 or later.
