Description (partial)

Cisco Nexus devices running Cisco NX-OS software contain an information disclosure vulnerability within the command line interpreter that could allow an authenticated, local attacker to disclose the configuration 
of a Virtual Device Context (VDC) to which they are not assigned. 

The vulnerability exists due to a lack of path sanitization on a certain show command.  An attacker assigned to the administrative role of a VDC could leverage this vulnerability to display the configuration of a VDC 
to which they are not assigned.
