Cisco FTD Web Services DoS (cisco-sa-20180606-asaftd)

high Nessus Plugin ID 124172


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


The remote Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) Software is missing a vendor-supplied security patch. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in the web interface due to improper validation of the HTTP URL. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to cause a DoS condition or unauthenticated disclosure of information. This vulnerability applies to IPv4 and IPv6 HTTP traffic.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to the relevant fixed version referenced in Cisco security advisory cisco-sa-20180606-asaftd.
