Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS 6.1.x / 7.0.x < 7.0.18 / 7.1.x < 7.1.12 / 8.0.x < 8.0.4 Network Time Protocol Vulnerability

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103222


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 6.1.x, 7.0.x prior to 7.0.18, 7.1.x prior to 7.1.12, or 8.0.x prior to 8.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in the reslist() function in ntpq/ntpq-subs.c. An attacker can cause a stack-based buffer overflow to cause a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code. Note the attacker must be on the management interface to exploit this vulnerability.


Upgrade to Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS version 7.0.18 / 7.1.12 / 8.0.4 or later.
