2F5 will not develop a fix for vulnerable products that do not already have a fixed version listed in this article, and will not update this table with subsequent vulnerable releases in the associated branches. For more information, refer to K4602: Overview of the F5 security vulnerability response policy.

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.

Mitigation

As the Configuration utility is accessible only over Transport Layer Security (TLS), the use of a valid, signed TLS server certificate for the Configuration utility will show a server certificate validation error to the browser. If the affected system does not use a valid server certificate, the user will have to accept the validation bypass in the browser. If the Configuration utility is accessed by way of an IP address instead of through the FQDN, then this attack is not relevant.
