F5 Networks BIG-IP : BIG-IP APM vulnerability (K93543114)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 160548

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 K93543114 advisory.

- On F5 BIG-IP APM 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, when APM is configured on a virtual server and the associated access profile is configured with APM AAA NTLM Auth, undisclosed requests can cause an increase in internal resource utilization. Note: Software versions which have reached End of Technical Support (EoTS) are not evaluated (CVE-2022-27181)

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 one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K93543114.
