  • Cisco Unity Connection

Known Affected Releases

8.6(4.1) 9.0(1.7) 9.1(1.10)

Description (partial)



Symptom:

Cisco Unity Connection contains a directory traversal vulnerability within the VMWS Attachment Service API.  An authenticated, remote attacker could 
leverage this vulnerability to place files in arbitrary directories on the affected system for a short amount of time.

The issue is due to a failure to properly sanitize user supplied input passed as part of the input string when supplying a filename to the VMWS 
attachment service.  An attacker could leverage the vulnerability to write a file to any location that the <i>tomcat</i> user can access.  This action could 
have extended secondary impacts on the device.



Conditions:

Cisco Unity Connection devices running version 7.x or unpatched 8.5, 8.6, or 9.1 software.
