high Nessus Plugin ID 154343


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


According to its self-reported version, Cisco Integrated Management Controller is affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability in its web-based management interface due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, by sending crafted HTTP requests to an affected device, to cause the application to stop responding.

Please see the included Cisco BIDs and Cisco Security Advisory for more information.

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