Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
In F5 BIG-IP LTM, AAM, AFM, Analytics, APM, ASM, DNS, Edge Gateway, GTM, Link Controller, PEM, WebAccelerator software version 12.0.0 - 12.1.2, 11.6.0 - 11.6.1, 11.4.0 - 11.5.4, 11.2.1, when ConfigSync is configured, attackers on adjacent networks may be able to bypass the TLS protections usually used to encrypted and authenticate connections to mcpd. This vulnerability may allow remote attackers to cause a denial-of-service (DoS) attack via resource exhaustion.
CWE-400 - Uncontrolled resource consumption
An uncontrolled resource allocation attack (also known as resource exhaustion attack) triggers unauthorized overconsumption of the limited resources in an application, such as memory, file system storage, database connection pool entries, and CPU. This may lead to denial of service for valid users and degradation of the application's functionality as well as that of the host operating system.
