Synopsis

The remote PAN-OS host is affected by a vulnerability

Description

The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 8.1.x prior to 8.1.20-h1 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.14-h3 or 9.1.x prior to 9.1.11-h2 or 10.0.x prior to 10.0.8 or 10.1.x prior to 10.1.3. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- An OS command injection vulnerability in the Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) feature of PAN- OS software allows an unauthenticated network-based attacker with specific knowledge of the firewall configuration to execute arbitrary code with root user privileges. The attacker must have network access to the GlobalProtect interfaces to exploit this issue. (CVE-2021-3060)

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 PAN-OS 8.1.20-h1 / 9.0.14-h3 / 9.1.11-h2 / 10.0.8 / 10.1.3 or later
