Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS 10.2.x < 10.2.9-h1 / 11.0.x < 11.0.4-h1 / 11.1.x < 11.1.2-h3 Vulnerability

critical Nessus Plugin ID 193255


The remote PAN-OS host is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 10.2.x prior to 10.2.9-h1 or 11.0.x prior to 11.0.4-h1 or 11.1.x prior to 11.1.2-h3. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

- A command injection as a result of arbitrary file creation vulnerability in the GlobalProtect feature of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS software for specific PAN-OS versions and distinct feature configurations may enable an unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code with root privileges on the firewall.

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 10.2.9-h1 / 11.0.4-h1 / 11.1.2-h3 or later
