Cisco Application Control Engine < A3(2.1) Multiple Unspecified Traversals (cisco-sa-20090225-anm)

high Nessus Plugin ID 69913


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


The Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) software installed on the remote Cisco IOS device is earlier than A3(2.1). It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple unspecified directory traversals.
An authenticated attacker could exploit these to access ACE operating system and host operating system files.


Upgrade to Cisco ACE A3(2.1) or later as discussed in Cisco Security Advisory cisco-sa-20090225-anm.
