Critical Zoho Zero-Day Flaw Disclosed

The IT help desk ManageEngine software made by Zoho Corp has been compromised by a zero-day vulnerability that enables unauthenticated access to systems, allowing a remote attacker to launch attacks. Zoho has since released an update that addresses the vulnerability after it was discovered by Steven Seeley of Source Incite on Thursday. Seeley published information about the flaw on Twitter, along with a proof of concept exploit.

Zoho announced that they plan to release a patch for the flaw on Friday.
