BD is aware of and currently monitoring vulnerabilities affecting all versions of Axeda Agent and Axeda Desktop Server for Windows Operating Systems. This third-party vulnerability is not specific to BD or our products. Additionally, we have not received any reports of this vulnerability being exploited on BD products. BD is providing this update to let customers know which BD products could be affected by the following third-party Axeda vulnerabilities:
BD ended its license agreement with Axeda in August 2019 and most customers have already moved to a non-Axeda based provisioned product. BD is proactively reaching out to customers who may still have Axeda to assist in removing this application.
Note: BD Assurity Linc™ product and version numbers are different between BD IDS and BD Biosciences (BDB) products. BD IDS Assurity Linc™ comes as a hardware appliance.
The BD Biosciences products listed below are in scope only if they are provisioned with BD Assurity Linc™ version 2.0 or earlier (which includes Axeda) and have a Windows 7 Operating System. Newer versions of BD Assurity Linc™ (> version 2.0) or systems with Windows 10 Operating System do not utilize Axeda products.
These lists do not indicate the patch or device status. They may be updated if more products are identified. Please check back periodically for updates.
