Report a potential security vulnerability or concern

Zebra has established a standard practice of seeking, communicating, and addressing product security issues in a timely fashion.  Vulnerability disclosure is a vital component to Zebra's Secure Through Partnership approach.

Zebra encourages customers and security researchers to report potential vulnerabilities with Zebra’s products/solutions.  To report a potential product/solution related security issue (such as an incident, data breach, or vulnerability), please visit our VDP reporting page.

Disclaimer: Zebra makes every attempt to release security updates on or about the time that Google releases its respective security bulletin. However, delivery time of security updates may vary depending on the region, product model, and third party software suppliers. Under some circumstances, the OS must be updated to the latest maintenance release prior to installing the security updates. Individual product updates will provide specific guidance.

Unless otherwise noted, there have been no reports of active customer exploitation or abuse from these newly reported issues.
