high Nessus Plugin ID 148847
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version, the version of Pulse Connect Secure running on the remote host is greater than 9.0R3 and prior to 9.1R11.4. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities including an authentication bypass vulnerability that can allow an unauthenticated user to perform remote arbitrary file execution on the Pulse Connect Secure gateway.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Pulse Connect Secure version 9.1R11.4 or later.
