Description
Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal (Unified CVP) contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute unauthorized user-supplied web applications.

The vulnerability is due to improper Tomcat component configurations on an affected device. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability via unspecified vectors. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute unauthorized user-supplied web applications on a targeted device.

Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability in a security advisory and has released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
Cisco Unified CVP Software versions prior to 9.0.1 ES 11 are vulnerable.
 
IntelliShield Analysis
To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker may require access to trusted, internal networks to send crafted requests to the affected software. This access requirement could limit the likelihood of a successful exploit.

Cisco indicates through the CVSS score that functional exploit code exists; however, the code is not known to be publicly available.

Safeguards
Understanding activity on the network provides information and visibility that can be used to identify potential security incidents. Organizations should log events from devices and review the logged data to provide insight into anomalies or malicious activity. For logging best practices, consult Cisco Guide to Harden Cisco IOS Devices.

Network traffic should be monitored for security-related network activity. NetFlow identifies security-related network activity. For NetFlow configuration details, consult Introduction to Cisco IOS NetFlow - A Technical Overview.

It is critical to prevent unauthorized direct communication to network devices. Restrict network traffic destined for the network infrastructure to protect against reconnaissance and denial of service attacks. For configuration details, consult Protecting Your Core: Infrastructure Protection Access Control Lists.

Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Administrators are advised to allow only trusted users to have network access.

Administrators may consider using IP-based access control lists (ACLs) to allow only trusted systems to access the affected systems.

Administrators are advised to monitor affected systems.
