The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


According to its self-reported version, Cisco SD-WAN vManage Software is affected by an unspecified vulnerability in the web-based management interface. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by sending carefully crafted HTTP requests to the affected system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to bypass authorization checking and gain access to sensitive information on the system.
