New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, Cisco Data Center Network Manager is prior to version 11.3(1) and is, therefore, affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the REST API endpoint due to insufficient access control validation. An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating with a low-privilege account and sending a crafted request to the API. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to interact with the API with administrative privileges. Please see the included Cisco BID and Cisco Security Advisory for more information.
