The Advisory states that no known public exploits specifically target this vulnerability, and that this vulnerability is exploitable from an adjacent network. Your E-ISAC has previously made members aware that adversary activity has indicated the desire to learn about and gain access to ICS environments by first compromising corporate/IT networks. Ensuring that your organization has considered this type of attack vector in risk assessment activities can help protect against threats of this nature.
