A vulnerability in the network-operator
user role implementation for Cisco NX-OS System Software could allow an authenticated, local attacker to improperly delete valid user accounts. The network-operator
role should not be able to delete other configured users on the device.
The vulnerability is due to a lack of proper role-based access control (RBAC) checks for the actions that a user with the network-operator
role is allowed to perform. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to the device with user credentials that give that user the network-operator
role. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to impact the integrity of the device by deleting configured user credentials. The attacker would need valid user credentials for the device.
There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
