Cisco Secure Access Control (cisco-sa-20180502-acs1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 110399
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


The version of Cisco Secure Access Control System (ACS) running on the remote host is prior to Cumulative Patch. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the ACS Report component that is triggered when handling specially crafted Action Message Format (AMF) messages. This may allow a remote attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code.


Upgrade to version Cumulative Patch or later.
