On October 26, 2017, a CVE that is specific to Bomgar (CVE-2017-5996) was published.

In February 2017, a security firm contacted us about a vulnerability in Bomgar’s Remote Support product. Bomgar promptly addressed the issue, and an update was included in subsequent releases. The security firm has now decided to publish it as a reported vulnerability, which is a common practice.

All Bomgar Remote Support customers can check their software version by going to /login Status>Site Status and look for the Product Version number.
