The remote Cisco TelePresence Conductor device is affected by a command injection vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, remote Cisco TelePresence Conductor device is affected by a command injection vulnerability in GNU Bash known as Shellshock. The vulnerability is due to the processing of trailing strings after function definitions in the values of environment variables.
