Cisco Bug: CSCut64189 - Device TELNET can enter Privileged Mode without Enable Password
May 17, 2017
- Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switches
Known Affected Releases
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.
