Attack: Eaton 9000X Drive CVE-2018-8847

Severity: High

This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.


This signature detects the attempt to exploit Stack Based Buffer Overflow vulnerability on the affected product.

Additional Information

Eaton 9000X Drive is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause a denial-of-service condition.


  • 9000X Drive 2.0.29 and prior are vulnerable.
