Known Affected Releases


Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) installer for Windows could allow an authenticated, local attacker to perform an executable hijacking attack. To exploit this vulnerability, the attacker would need to have valid credentials on the Windows system.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of the resources loaded by the application at run time. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by crafting a malicious executable file and placing it in a specific location on the targeted system. The malicious file would execute when the vulnerable application is first installed. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target machine with administrative privileges.

This vulnerability only applies to Windows 2019, which is not supported by DCNM
