Solution

Update

The vendor has stated that these vulnerabilities have been addressed in Web Console 2.2 build 36. The vendor recommends that users update to Web Console 2.2 build 36 or higher.

Restrict access

As a general good security practice, only allow connections from trusted hosts and networks. Note that restricting access does not prevent SQLi attacks since the attack comes as an SQL request from a legitimate user's host. Restricting access would prevent an attacker from accessing a web interface using stolen credentials from a blocked network location.
