Summary

A vulnerability in the deployment module of Cisco WebEx Meeting Center could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to bypass the passphrase check during the deployment of a virtual machine.

The vulnerability is due to a flaw in the validation of the passphrase.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by accessing the deployment URL without the passphrase. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to start the deployment of a virtual machine or interrupt an existing deployment by resetting the status of the deployment itself. This vulnerability can be exploited only if the virtual machine is not already deployed or during the deployment itself. After the virtual machine is deployed, the deployment URL is not valid anymore so the vulnerability cannot be exploited.

What Is a Cisco Security Notice?

The Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) publishes Cisco Security Notices to inform customers of low- to mid-level severity security issues involving Cisco products.

Customers who wish to upgrade to a software version that includes fixes for these issues should contact their normal support channels. Free software updates will not be provided for issues that are disclosed through a Cisco Security Notice.
