Fortinet FortiOS 5.2.x < 5.2.10 / 5.4.1 < 5.4.2 Local Password Hash Disclosure (FG-IR-16-050)

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

Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a local information disclosure

Description :

The remote FortiGate device is running a version of FortiOS that is
5.2.x prior to 5.2.10, or else it is running version 5.4.1. It is,
therefore, affected by a local information disclosure vulnerability
due to a failure to properly protect password hashes stored on the
device. A local attacker can exploit this to obtain password hashes of
other users on the device, allowing the attacker to possibly obtain
user passwords, including the passwords of super-admin users.
