Last Modified

May 17, 2017

Products (1)

  • Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches

Known Affected Releases

15.2(3.7.1E)

Description (partial)

Symptom:

Under some conditions, users logged in to the device over telnet or
SSH are able to enter privileged command mode without being asked
for a password even when "enable password" and/or "enable secret" is
configured.

Access to non-privileged command mode is not affected by this defect.

Conditions:

The defect is specific to Catalyst 4500.

The defect is observed on all Catalyst 4500 redundant systems (VSS as
well as dual-supervisor chassis). The defect is observed only after a
HA switchover, when a supervisor that used to operate in a Standby
role takes over as the Active.
