Summary

A vulnerability in the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) of the Cisco 
Unified Computing System could allow an authenticated, local attacker to 
inject arbitrary commands on the underlying operating system with elevated 
privileges.

The vulnerability is due to improper filtering of user-supplied parameters. An 
attacker could exploit this vulnerability by providing invalid parameters to 
certain command-line interface (CLI) commands. An exploit could allow the 
attacker to execute arbitrary commands or obtain an interactive shell with 
elevated privileges.
