Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is affected
by a remote code execution vulnerability in the GlobalProtect web
portal due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling
SSL VPN requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this, via a crafted request, to cause an overflow condition, resulting
in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

Note that the remote PAN-OS is reportedly affected by other
vulnerabilities as well; however, Nessus has not tested for these.
