- Cisco ASA Next-Generation Firewall Services
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: A vulnerability in the role-based access control of Cisco ASA-CX and Cisco Prime Security Manager (PRSM) could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to change the password of any user on the system. Full advisory at: http://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-20160203-prsm Conditions: The vulnerability exists because the password change request is not fully qualified. An authenticated attacker with a user role other than Administrator could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted HTTP request to the Cisco PRSM. An exploit could allow the attacker to change the password of any user on the system, including users with the Administrator role. All versions of Cisco ASA-CX Content-Aware Security and Cisco PRSM software prior to 188.8.131.52(112) are affected by this vulnerability.
