Cisco Unified Communications Manager SQLi (cisco-sa-cucm-injection-g6MbwH2)

high Nessus Plugin ID 182580


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


The version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager installed on the remote host is prior to 12.5(1)SU8 or is version 14 and missing a security hotfix. It is, therefore, affected by a SQL injection vulnerability. Due to improper validation of user-supplied input, a remote attacker with read-only or higher privileges could read or modify data in the underlying database or elevate their privileges.

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