F5 Networks BIG-IP : Apache vulnerability (K65355492)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118692

Synopsis

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

Description

Apache modules apache_auth_token_mod and mod_auth_f5_auth_token.cpp allow possible unauthenticated bruteforce on the em_server_ip authorization parameter to obtain which SSL client certificates used for mutual authentication between BIG-IQ or Enterprise Manager (EM) and managed BIG-IP devices. (CVE-2018-5506)

Impact

This vulnerability can disclose the em_server_ip field of valid client certificates. This does not reveal the certificate needed for authentication.

Solution
