Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS 9.0.x < 9.0.17-h4 / 9.1.x < 9.1.17 / 10.1.x < 10.1.12 / 10.2.x < 10.2.8 / 11.0.x < 11.0.3 Vulnerability

high Nessus Plugin ID 193155


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 9.0.x prior to 9.0.17-h4 or 9.1.x prior to 9.1.17 or 10.1.x prior to 10.1.12 or 10.2.x prior to 10.2.8 or 11.0.x prior to 11.0.3. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- A packet processing mechanism in Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS software enables a remote attacker to reboot hardware-based firewalls. Repeated attacks eventually cause the firewall to enter maintenance mode, which requires manual intervention to bring the firewall back online. (CVE-2024-3385)

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 9.0.17-h4 / 9.1.17 / 10.1.12 / 10.2.8 / 11.0.3 or later
