Description

A vulnerability in the implementation of the CLI for multiple Cisco products could allow an authenticated, local attacker to perform a command injection attack.  This vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of a process argument on an affected product. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by injecting commands during the execution of this process. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying operating system with the privileges of the management framework process, which are commonly root privileges.  Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability. This advisory is available at the following link: https://sec.cloudapps.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-cli-cmdinj-4MttWZPB
