Medium Nessus Plugin ID 136762


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 9.1.x prior to 9.1.2. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- A NULL pointer dereference vulnerability in Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS allows an authenticated administrator to send a request that causes the rasmgr daemon to crash.
Repeated attempts to send this request result in denial of service to all PAN-OS services by restarting the device and putting it into maintenance mode. This issue affects: PAN-OS 9.1 versions earlier than 9.1.2.

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