Description (partial)

Cisco Host Scan comprises a series of advanced executables that perform security checks on the local system to identify operating system, anti-virus and other system information.

A vulnerability in Cisco Host Scan allows an authenticated, remote attacker to bypass Host Scan security posture checks and successfully establish an AnyConnect VPN session from a device that does not meet the company's defined VPN policies.

Note: The attacker still needs to authenticate to the VPN headend device to successfully establish a VPN session and thus still requires valid VPN user credentials.
