The Motorola MR2600 two-way radio is vulnerable to a remote code execution flaw due to an arbitrary firmware upload issue.

Attackers can exploit this vulnerability to upload and run malicious code on affected devices without authentication. This gives hackers full control of the MR2600 system.

Two-way radios are often used by organizations like construction crews, event staff and security teams to communicate quickly and easily without an internet connection. However, this critical firmware upload bug puts all MR2600 users at risk of remote hacking.

To protect themselves, administrators should contact Motorola immediately for an updated firmware patch to fix this vulnerability. In the meantime, users should disable any remote access features on the radios if possible. Regular password changes are also recommended.

Staying on top of security updates is essential for devices like radios that are constantly communicating even if not connected to the internet. Organizations relying on Motorola equipment should prioritize patching this flaw to prevent potential disruption from remote attackers gaining control of their radio networks.
