Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) implementation of the Cisco Secure Access 
Control Server (ACS) could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to impact the integrity of the system 
by modifying dashboard portlets that should be restricted.

The vulnerability is due to improper RBAC validation when a new administrative dashboard or portlet is 
created. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating as a non-privileged user and 
navigating to what should be a restricted web page. An exploit could allow the attacker to create a dashboard
or portlet which should not be allowed.

Device running with default configuration running an affected version of software.
