Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS 8.1.x < 8.1.24 / 9.0.x < 9.0.17 / 9.1.x < 9.1.15-h1 / 10.0.x < 10.0.12 Vulnerability

high Nessus Plugin ID 193154


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 8.1.x prior to 8.1.24 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.17 or 9.1.x prior to 9.1.15-h1 or 10.0.x prior to 10.0.12. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- A vulnerability in Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS software enables a remote attacker to reboot PAN-OS firewalls when receiving Windows New Technology LAN Manager (NTLM) packets from Windows servers. Repeated attacks eventually cause the firewall to enter maintenance mode, which requires manual intervention to bring the firewall back online. (CVE-2024-3384)

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 8.1.24 / 9.0.17 / 9.1.15-h1 / 10.0.12 or later
