Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls


Severity Medium
Score 4/10


Cisco Secure Access Control System before 5.4(0.46.2) and 5.5 before 5.5(0.46) and Cisco Identity Services Engine 1.0(4.573) do not properly implement access control for support bundles, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information via brute-force attempts to send valid credentials, aka Bug IDs CSCue00833 and CSCub40331.

CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls

CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
