The vulnerability is due to lack of input validation, successful exploitation allows the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying OS with the privileges of the currently logged-in.

Cisco released security updates to address this vulnerability as a part of the February 2020 Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software Security Advisory.

Cisco FXOS and UCS Manager Software CLI

The vulnerability resides n the CLI of Cisco FXOS Software and Cisco UCS Manager Software that would allow an authenticated, local attacker to execute arbitrary commands.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted arguments to specific commands, successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying OS with the privileges of the currently logged-in user.

Cisco released security updates to address this vulnerability as a part of the February 2020 Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software Security Advisory.

Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software – Arbitrary Code Execution

The vulnerability allows an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code as root or to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition.

“A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause a buffer overflow that could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code as root or cause a DoS condition on the affected device.”

Cisco released security updates to address this vulnerability as a part of the February 2020 Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software Security Advisory.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
