The Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this, via certain invalid commands, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

EPICBANANA is one of multiple Equation Group vulnerabilities and exploits disclosed on 2016/08/14 by a group known as the Shadow Brokers.
