The Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) is missing a vendor-supplied security patch. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in the command-line interface (CLI) parser related to processing invalid commands. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this, via certain invalid commands, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
