Synopsis

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

Description

According to its banner, the version of the Cisco ASA software on the remote device is affected by a vulnerability in its SSL VPN code due to improper validation of session information for the SSL VPN when a SharePoint handler is created. This allows a remote, authenticated attacker to overwrite arbitrary files present on the RAMFS file system, inject Lua scripts, or cause a denial of service condition via crafted HTTP requests.

Solution

Apply the relevant patch referenced in the vendor advisory.
