F5 Networks BIG-IP : TMOS Shell vulnerability (K37442533)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118657


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


Authenticated users granted TMOS Shell (tmsh) access can access
objects on the file system which would normally be disallowed by tmsh
restrictions. This allows for authenticated, low privileged attackers
to exfiltrate objects on the file system which should not be allowed.


This vulnerability allows unauthorized privileges to authenticated
administrative users with tmsh access.


Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5
Solution K37442533.
