Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the command-line interface (CLI) processor of the
Cisco Wireless LAN Controller could allow an authenticated, local
attacker to inject arbitrary commands that are executed with elevated
privileges on the underlying operating system.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient input validation. An attacker
could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to the device and
submitting crafted commands through the CLI. An exploit could allow the
attacker to read, write and overwrite any file on the system or execute
arbitrary code.
