ArubaOS-CX < 10.04.2000 Memory Corruption (ARUBA-PSA-2020-009)

high Nessus Plugin ID 150076
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.


An application installed on the remote host is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.


The version of ArubaOS-CX installed on the remote host is prior to version 10.04.2000. Two memory corruption vulnerabilities in the Aruba CX Switches Series 6200F, 6300, 6400, 8320, 8325, and 8400 have been found. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could result in Local Denial of Service of the LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol) process in the switch.

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


Upgrade to ArubaOS-CX version 10.04.2000 or later.
