Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by an API key bypass flaw.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS
prior to 4.1.16 / 5.0.10 / 5.1.5. It is, therefore, affected by an API
key bypass flaw which allows a remote attacker to bypass the XML API
key for a session that has already been authorized.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
