Mac OS X : Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client 3.x < 3.1.10010.0 / 4.x < 4.1.4011.0 Arbitrary File Write

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by an arbitrary file write vulnerability.

Description :

The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client installed on the remote
Mac OS X host is version 3.x prior to 3.1.10010.0 or 4.x prior to
4.1.4011.0. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw due to improper
sanitization of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this issue, by convincing a user to connect to a
malicious head-end system, to traverse outside a restricted path and
thus write or overwrite arbitrary files in the active user's context.
