medium Nessus Plugin ID 160547

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of F5 Networks BIG-IP installed on the remote host is prior to 13.1.5 / 14.1.4.6 / 15.1.5.1 / 16.1.2.2 / 17.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the K59904248 advisory.

- On F5 BIG-IP 16.1.x versions prior to 16.1.2.2, 15.1.x versions prior to 15.1.5.1, 14.1.x versions prior to 14.1.4.6, 13.1.x versions prior to 13.1.5, and all versions of 12.1.x and 11.6.x, a directory traversal vulnerability exists in iControl SOAP that allows an authenticated attacker with at least guest role privileges to read wsdl files in the BIG-IP file system. Note: Software versions which have reached End of Technical Support (EoTS) are not evaluated (CVE-2022-29474)

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