This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description :

A vulnerability in the Cisco Unified Computing System Serial over LAN
(SoL) implementation could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
perform a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack.

The vulnerability occurs because the Board Management Controller (BMC)
uses a hard-coded private key. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability by intercepting an SoL connection. Successful
exploitation could allow the attacker to view or modify SoL
communications.
