Upgrade your FortiMail now!

There seems to be a vulnerarbility in some FortiMail versions, that allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to access the system by requesting a password change. Please refer to the FortiGuard PSIRT article.

The problem here is not only the unauthorized access to the system, but also the change of the password of all configured administrative accounts. Also, the maintainer functionality to reset the administrator password over a serial console of the FortiMail is being disabled from the attacker.

What’s new with FortiOS 6.2/6.0.8: Update issue with certificate for WebUI

Recently we have had a few support cases where a customer was unable to log in to the firewall via WebUI after the firmware update. But SSH access worked fine.

It turned out that during the update process the server certificate used for the WebUI is lost.

Config with v6.0.4 (it does not happen with „self-signed“ only):

config system global
set admin-server-cert "self-signed"
end

Migrate Fortigate Configurations with FortiConverter

Starting with FortiConverter 6.0, any kind of conversion requires a valid license

Fortinet has published a very nice and helpful tool for converting firewall configs from other vendors into a Fortigate configuration file. Also an old Fortigate config file can be used as the source file.

So if you are going to replace an old Fortigate model with a new one and you want use the old config file (instead of configuring the new Fortigate from the scratch) you can use the FortiConverter as an alternative to the procedure we have described in one of our former blog post „How to transfer a FortiGate configuration file to a new FortiGate unit of a different model“.
