New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.14 or 7.1.x prior to 7.1.9. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the Management Web Interface due to improper validation of certain request parameters. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose potentially sensitive information. Note that this vulnerability only affects the 7.1.x version.
(CVE-2017-7126)

- A flaw exists in the Management Web Interface due to improper validation of certain request parameters. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to write arbitrary data to export files. (CVE-2017-7217)

- A flaw exists in the Management Web Interface due to improper validation of certain request parameters. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. Note that this vulnerability only affects the 7.1.x version.
(CVE-2017-7218)

Solution

Upgrade to Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS version 7.0.14 / 7.1.9 or later.

As a workaround or mitigation, Palo Alto Networks recommends allowing web interface access only to a dedicated management network.
Additionally, restrict the set of IP addresses to a subset of authorized sources that you allow to interact with the management network.
