TTCSIRT-212.061419: TT-CSIRT Advisory – Cisco Security Updates

13th June 2019

Cisco has released a security update stating that a vulnerability in the web-based UI (web UI) of Cisco IOS XE Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack on an affected system.

The issue is due to insufficient CSRF protections for the web UI on an affected device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to follow a malicious link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to perform arbitrary actions with the privilege level of the affected user. If the user has administrative privileges, the attacker could alter the configuration, execute commands, or reload an affected device.

Further information on this vulnerability and how it can be mitigated can be found on the Cisco Website at https://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityAdvisory/cisco-sa-20190612-iosxe-csrf
