Today, an article was brought to our attention that suggests a new attack tactic was targeting an old vulnerability in Nexus Repository Manager 3 (NXRM) - CVE-2019-7238.
When the vulnerability was flagged to us in December 2018, we responded immediately, fixed the identified vulnerability and removed the threat. At the time, we also subsequently took numerous steps across multiple distribution channels to reach all Nexus Repository customers and users to ensure that they were aware of the issue and provide proper support.
While a majority of our users have updated several times since the vulnerability fix was released, with this new spotlight, we wanted to again emphasize the importance of upgrading to the latest version of Nexus Repository.
