1The CVSSv3 score link takes you to a resource outside of AskF5, and it is possible that the document may be removed without our knowledge.

2 In BIG-IP 13.1.0 and later, you can update APM client components independently from BIG-IP software. APM Clients 7.1.5, which is bundled with BIG-IP 13.1.0, is affected by this vulnerability. To address this vulnerability, customers running BIG-IP 13.1.0 and later can download and install APM Clients 7.1.7.

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.
