Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS 9.1.x < 9.1.16--hF / 10.1.x < 10.1.11 / 10.2.x < 10.2.6 / 11.0.x < 11.0.3 Vulnerability

high Nessus Plugin ID 182189


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 9.1.x prior to 9.1.16--hF or 10.1.x prior to 10.1.11 or 10.2.x prior to 10.2.6 or 11.0.x prior to 11.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- BGP software such as FRRouting FRR included as part of the PAN-OS, Prisma SD-WAN ION, and Prisma Access routing features enable a remote attacker to incorrectly reset network sessions though an invalid BGP update. This issue is applicable only to devices and appliances with BGP routing features enabled.

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


Upgrade to PAN-OS 9.1.16--hF / 10.1.11 / 10.2.6 / 11.0.3 or later
