Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103222

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution
