Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) could allow an 
authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying
operating system with the privileges of the root user.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient input sanitization during the 
Grapevine update process. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by 
authenticating to the affected system with administrative privileges and 
inserting arbitrary commands into an upgrade parameter. An exploit could allow
the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the affected system with 
root-level privileges.

vulnerability.

Workarounds

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Fixed Software

Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerability 
described in this advisory. Customers may only install and expect support for
software versions and feature sets for which they have purchased a license. By
installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such software upgrades,
customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco software license:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html

Additionally, customers may only download software for which they have a valid
license, procured from Cisco directly, or through a Cisco authorized reseller
or partner. In most cases this will be a maintenance upgrade to software that
was previously purchased. Free security software updates do not entitle 
customers to a new software license, additional software feature sets, or 
major revision upgrades.

When considering software upgrades, customers are advised to consult the Cisco
Security Advisories and Responses archive at http://www.cisco.com/go/psirt and
review subsequent advisories to determine exposure and a complete upgrade 
solution.

In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to upgrade contain 
sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software 
configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release. If 
the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco 
Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance providers.

Customers Without Service Contracts

Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service 
contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but are
unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should 
obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html

Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared to 
provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free upgrade.

Fixed Releases

This vulnerability is fixed in Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure 
Controller Enterprise Module release 1.1 and later.

To download a release of Cisco APIC-EM Software, visit the Software Center on
Cisco.com and navigate to Products > Cloud and Systems Management > Policy and
Automation Controllers > Application Policy Infrastructure Controller 
Enterprise Module (APIC-EM).
