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

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 110399


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.
