Ars Technica: 200 million devices—some mission-critical—vulnerable to remote takeover

Ars Technica: 200 million devices—some mission-critical—vulnerable to remote takeover. “In all, researchers with security firm Armis identified 11 vulnerabilities in various versions of VxWorks, a slimmed-down operating system that runs on more than 2 billion devices worldwide (this section of Wikipedia’s article on the OS lists some of its more notable uses). Billed collectively as Urgent 11, the vulnerabilities consist of six remote code flaws and five less-severe issues that allow things like information leaks and denial-of-service attacks.”
