The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The version of Cisco SD-WAN vManage installed on the remote host is prior to 18.3.0. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the cisco-sa-20200122-sdwan-cmd-inject advisory.

- A vulnerability in the WebUI of the Cisco SD-WAN Solution could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to inject and execute arbitrary commands with vmanage user privileges on an affected system. The vulnerability is due to insufficient input validation of data parameters for certain fields in the affected solution. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by configuring a malicious username on the login page of the affected solution. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to inject and execute arbitrary commands with vmanage user privileges on an affected system. (CVE-2019-12629)

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