Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-2017-6710
Summary:

A vulnerability in the Cisco Virtual Network Function (VNF) Element Manager could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to elevate privileges and run commands in the context of the root user on the server. The vulnerability is due to command settings that allow Cisco VNF Element Manager users to specify arbitrary commands that will run as root on the server. An attacker could use this setting to elevate privileges and run commands in the context of the root user on the server. Cisco Bug IDs: CSCvc76670. Known Affected Releases: prior to 5.0.4 and 5.1.4.

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with network access which means the vulnerable software is bound to the network stack and the attacker does not require local network access or local access to exploit it. Such a vulnerability is often termed “remotely exploitable”.

Exploitability Complexity:

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples: The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous an untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server). The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous. The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering. The 'race condition' is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).

Authentication:

One instance of authentication is required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact:

There is a total compromise of system integrity. There is a complete loss of system protection, resulting in the entire system being compromised. The attacker is able to modify any files on the target system.

Availability Impact:

There is a total shutdown of the affected resource. The attacker can render the resource completely unavailable.
