Cisco Firepower Management Center Software Command Injection Vulnerabilities (cisco-sa-fmc-cmd-inj-Z3B5MY35)

high Nessus Plugin ID 167270


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


The version of Cisco Firepower Management Center installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by insufficient validation of user-supplied parameters for certain API endpoints. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending crafted input to an affected API endpoint. A successful exploit could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the device with low system privileges.

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


Upgrade to the relevant fixed version referenced in Cisco bug IDs CSCwb23029, CSCwb23048
