Opto 22 responds to inquiries regarding URGENT/11

Opto 22 assures customers that its products, including groov EPIC edge programmable industrial controller and SNAP PAC System, are not affected by vulnerabilities.

The recent announcement of security vulnerabilities discovered in the Wind River® VxWorks® IPnet TCP/IP stack has prompted questions from Opto 22 customers about what impact this discovery may have on TCP/IP-based products developed and manufactured by Opto 22.

Opto 22 would like to reassure its customers that, after careful and thorough review, it can state that none of its hardware or software products contain the VxWorks IPnet TCP/IP stack or variants of that software and are, therefore, not directly exposed to any attacks that might target these vulnerabilities. This statement applies to the recent Opto 22 product family groov EPIC® (edge programmable industrial controller), the groov® Edge Appliance (groov Box), the SNAP PAC® System, and SNAP Ethernet I/O® products.

Customers should be aware that some companies might use Opto 22 language or terms (for example, “EPIC controller”) to describe their products. These are general descriptions and have absolutely no connection to the Opto 22 groov EPIC® controller, a product name that is a registered trademark owned by Opto 22 and protected under the USPTO trademark laws of the United States. Be sure to check specific model numbers and product names, not just general descriptions, in order to minimize confusion.
