Workaround Procedure 1:

1. The product should not be directly connected to the Internet and should be installed in a network protected by a firewall.

In that case, please set a private IP address and operate.

2. Set an administrator password for each product.

The administrator password should be a complex string that is difficult for others to guess, such as mixing not only English characters but also symbols and numbers to make it 8 characters or more.

Please check the Security Guidebook here.  <- Here is a link to the security guidebook.

Workaround Procedure 2:

For the affected products, you can block HTTP access (TCP/80 port) in Web Config. 

After configuring the product, block HTTP access (TCP/80 port) to the product with a network device (router or switch). 

Open the port only when you need to update the application settings or firmware.
