VPR Score: 3.6


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


According to its self-reported version, Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client is affected by a vulnerability in the interprocess communication (IPC) channel due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted IPC message to the AnyConnect process on an affected device, in order to overwrite VPN profiles, provided the attacker has valid credentials on the Windows system.

Please see the included Cisco BIDs and Cisco Security Advisory for more information.
