Vulnerabilities In the AmosConnect 8 Platform – Maritime Companies Update Their Platforms

AmosConnect 8 Vulnerabilities: A Wake-Up Call for Maritime Cyber Security

The consulting company IOActive published a series of vulnerabilities found in the AmosConnect 8 platform from Inmarsat.

The software is used to monitor GPS and technology systems on board, as well as provide messaging, email, and web browsing services. One of the bugs was found in the login form, allowing the attacker to easily obtain the username and password from the product database. The other flaw allows the attacker to gain privileged access remotely. The latter could allow the execution of commands that can compromise personal and operational data but could put navigation and general IT systems in danger.

The systems are evolving, and this example shows how important it is for maritime companies to start updating their systems and taking measures.
