Cisco Web Security Appliance Web Proxy ACL Flaw Lets Remote Users Forward Traffic to the Administrative Management Interface
Severity Rating: Medium
- Cisco Web Security Appliance
A vulnerability has been identified in Cisco Web Security Appliance and can be exploited by remote attackers to forward traffic from the web proxy interface of an affected device to the administrative management interface of the same device. The vulnerability exists because the affected software fails to deny traffic that is forwarded from the web proxy interface to the administrative management interface of a device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted stream of HTTP or HTTPS traffic to the web proxy interface of an affected device. A successful exploit could allow traffic to reach the administrative management interface of the affected device although the traffic should have been dropped.
Users are advised to apply updates.
