F5 Networks BIG-IP : TMM vulnerability (K12044607)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118600


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


In F5 BIG-IP LTM, AAM, AFM, Analytics, APM, ASM, DNS, GTM, Link Controller, PEM and Websafe software version 13.0.0, 12.0.0 to 12.1.2, 11.6.0 to 11.6.1 and 11.5.0 - 11.5.4, an undisclosed sequence of packets sent to BIG-IP High Availability state mirror listeners (primary and/or secondary IP) may cause TMM to restart.


The BIG-IP system may temporarily fail to process traffic as it recovers from a TMM restart, and devices configured as a high-availability (HA) pair may fail over.


Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K12044607.
