    Please find the requested information below:

    1.How to check the existing running version in XG firewall?(Steps)

    Answer : Multiple method to confirm the existing firmware.

    1)Login on XG Firewall and check the version on Dashboard.

    2) Login on firewall and Navigate --> System --> Backup & Firmware --> Firmware

    Here you may check the active firmware.

    2.What is the downtime required if this is the older one ?

    No fix down time but generally upgrade procedure will take approx 30-40 min if you are having single device.

    If you are having HA setup you may upgrade with zero down time.

  • I don't see mention of the fix in the MR9 release notes. Is this vulnerability exploited via ssh, the admin portal, clientless vpn?

    There is also no mention of what hot fix version patches the issue - the links only show you how to check the hot fix version, which doesn't help if you don't know what version to check for.

  • I am struggling to find any details of the fix and in-depth details on remediation.

    I assumed that the hot fix version should show 2?
