Understanding the Threat: CVE-2024-24919 Explained

This vulnerability allows unauthenticated attackers to gain access to local files on Check Point Security Gateways. Here’s a breakdown of what that means:

    • Details about the Check Point products you’re using, including versions and configurations.
