high Nessus Plugin ID 94054


The remote network virtual services management device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Cisco Cloud Services Platform (CSP) device is 2.x prior to 2.1.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A command injection vulnerability exists in the web-based GUI due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary operating system commands with root privileges. (CVE-2016-6373)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the web-based GUI due to improper sanitization of user-supplied data from HTTP requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted dnslookup command in an HTTP request, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-6374)


Upgrade to Cisco Cloud Services Platform version 2.1.0 or later.
