Mac OS X : Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client < 3.1.10010.0 / 4.0.x < 4.0.4013.0 / 4.1.x < 4.1.4011.0 IPC File Write Vulnerability

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85269


The remote host is affected by an arbitrary file write vulnerability.


The Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a version prior to 3.1.10010.0, or is version 4.0.x prior to 4.0.4013.0, or version 4.1.x prior to 4.1.4011.0. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw that allows unauthenticated IPC commands to write files. A local, authenticated attacker, using a specially crafted IPC command, can write or overwrite arbitrary files.


Upgrade to Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client version 3.1.10010.0 / 4.0.4013.0 / 4.1.4011.0 or later
