Cisco Application Control Engine Login Administrator IP Address Overlap (cisco-sa-20120620-ace)

high Nessus Plugin ID 69914


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 A4(2.3) / A5(1.1). It, therefore, potentially does not properly share a management IP address among multiple contexts when multicontext mode is enabled. This might allow an administrative user to be logged into an unintended context (virtual instance) on the ACE when two or more contexts are configured with the same management IP address.


Apply the relevant patch referenced in Cisco Security Advisory cisco-sa-20120620-ace.
