Version Summary:Multiple Cisco Content Network and Video Delivery products contain a vulnerability that could allow an authenticated but unprivileged, remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on a targeted device. Updates are available.
 
 
Description
A vulnerability in the web framework could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying operating system of the affected system as well as on underlying operating system of the devices associated and managed by the affected system.
The vulnerability is due to a failure to properly sanitize user input that is subsequently used to perform an action using the underlying command-line interface of the device. An authenticated but unprivileged attacker could exploit this vulnerability by logging in to the GUI of the affected system and appending arbitrary code to some of values passed to the system.

Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability in a security advisory and has released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
Cisco has published a list of affected Cisco software releases in the security advisory. The Vendor Announcements section of this alert contains a link to the advisory.
 
IntelliShield Analysis
To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker requires authenticated access to the targeted system. Authenticated access may require the attacker to access trusted, internal networks. These access requirements could limit the likelihood of a successful exploit.

Only devices running in management mode are affected by this vulnerability.

Cisco indicates through the CVSS score that functional exploit code exists; however, the code is not known to be publicly available.
 
Vendor Announcements
Cisco has released a security advisory for bug IDs CSCug40609, CSCug48855, CSCug48921, CSCug48872, CSCuh21103, CSCuh21020, and CSCug56790 at the following link: cisco-sa-20130731-cm
 
Impact
An authenticated but unprivileged, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the affected system and on the devices managed by the affected system itself and completely compromise the affected devices.
 
Technical Information
Additional technical details are not available.
