  3. Click on the Folder icon
  4. Now click on Choose File to select the regarding package which you just downloaded from you local system
  5. Once you selected the correct package click on "Start Upload"
  6. When the upload has been completed click on Apply
  7. To start the update switch to Management | Up2Date | Overview and click on on the button "Update to latest version now"

Additional Security Suggestions

Once you have updated your UTM you are no longer vulnerable. But in case you are using the Sophos SSL VPN client to also establish a VPN tunnel to an unpatched product/gateway(which is probably exploitable) it is recommended to also update the client.

To do so proceed as follows once you have updated the UTM:

  • Login to the UserPortal of the UTM
  • Navigate to Remote Access
  • Download the complete installation package
  • Once you have downloaded it roll it out to all your remote clients
