medium Nessus Plugin ID 93400
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote network management server is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning server is 9.0.x or 11.0.x prior to 11.1. It is, therefore, affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability in its command line interface due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. A local attacker with administrator-level access can exploit this to gain root access to the host operating system.


Upgrade to Cisco Prime Collaboration Provisioning version 11.1.0 or later.
