A vulnerability in the web
framework could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute
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
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.
