SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a FortiOS version prior or equal to 5.4.x or 5.6.x prior to 5.6.11 or 6.x to 6.2.0. It is, therefore, affected by an elevation of privilege vulnerability. An authenticated, remote attacker with admin privileges can exploit this, via restoring a modified configuration, to gain elevated super_admin level privileges.
SolutionUpgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 5.6.11/6.2.0 or later.
