The remote host is affected by an authentication security bypass
The Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is a version
prior to 6.1.7 or 7.x prior to 7.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by a
security bypass vulnerability due to a failure to invalidate the local
administrator API keys after a password change has been performed, the
old keys being valid up until the time the device is rebooted. A
remote attacker can exploit this to gain access to the management
