Cisco UCS Central Software < 2.0(1c) HTTP Request Handling RCE

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 107150

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


An infrastructure management application running on the remote host is affected by a remote command execution vulnerability.


The version of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Central Software running on the remote host is prior to 1.3(1c). It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in its web framework due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying operating system as the daemon user.


Upgrade to Cisco UCS Central Software version 2.0(1c) or later.
