The remote PAN-OS host is affected by vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 7.1.x prior to 7.1.24 or 8.0.x prior to 8.0.19 or 8.1.x prior to 8.1.8-h5 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.2-h4. It is, therefore, affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the management API which could lead to the disclosure of API keys and credentials which could be leveraged for an escalation of privilege.

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