The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


According to its self-reported version, Cisco Data Center Network Manager is prior to version 11.3(1) and is, therefore, affected by a cross-site request forgery vulnerability in the web-based management interface. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to follow a malicious link while having an active session on an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to perform arbitrary actions with the privilege level of the targeted user.

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