A vulnerability in the web-based UI of Cisco HyperFlex HX Data Platform Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to access sensitive information on an affected system. The vulnerability is due to a lack of proper input and authorization of HTTP requests. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a malicious HTTP request to the web-based UI of an affected system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to access files that may contain sensitive data.
CWE-862 - Missing Authorization
The missing authorization vulnerability occurs when a software program allows users to access privileged parts of the program without verifying the user credentials. Impact of such a vulnerability depends on the resources employed by the software, ranging from account takeover to sensitive information exposure, denial of service, and complete system takeover.
