Version Summary:	The Cisco ACE 4710 Application Control Engine
command-line interface contains a vulnerability that could allow an
authenticated, local attacker to elevate privileges on a targeted
system. Updates are not available.

Description
A vulnerability in the command-line interface (CLI) of Cisco Application
Control Engine (ACE) 4710 could allow an authenticated, local attacker to
elevate privileges to read and alter the content of files that belong to
other contexts.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient file access controls. An attacker
could exploit this vulnerability by crafting a malicious file, copying it
to the ACE, and using the file as input for a specific CLI command.

Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability; however, software updates are
not available.

Warning Indicators
At the time this alert was first published, Cisco ACE 4700 series (A5)
versions 3.0 and prior were vulnerable. Later versions of Cisco ACE may
also be vulnerable.

IntelliShield Analysis
To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must authenticate to the targeted
device and have local network access. These access requirements may reduce
the likelihood of a successful exploit.

Vendor Announcements
Cisco has released bug ID CSCur23662 for registered users, which contains
additional details and an up-to-date list of affected product versions.

Impact
An authenticated, local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read
and alter the content of files that belong to other contexts.

Technical Information
Additional technical information is not available.

Safeguards
Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Administrators are advised to allow only trusted users to access local
systems.

For additional information about cross-site scripting attacks and the
methods used to exploit these vulnerabilities, see the Cisco Applied
Mitigation Bulletin Understanding Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Threat Vectors.
