SynopsisThe remote PAN-OS host is affected by vulnerability
DescriptionThe version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 7.1.x prior to 8.1.14 or 8.0.x prior to 8.1.14 or 8.1.x prior to 8.1.14 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.7. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.
- An external control of filename vulnerability in the SD WAN component of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS Panorama allows an authenticated administrator to send a request that results in the creation and write of an arbitrary file on all firewalls managed by the Panorama. In some cases this results in arbitrary code execution with root permissions. This issue affects: All versions of PAN-OS 7.1; PAN-OS 8.1 versions earlier than 8.1.14; PAN-OS 9.0 versions earlier than 9.0.7. (CVE-2020-2009)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
