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 Versions known to be not vulnerable 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.

F5 responds to vulnerabilities in accordance with the Severity values published in the previous table. The Severity values and other security vulnerability parameters are defined in K4602: Overview of the F5 security vulnerability response policy.

To mitigate this vulnerability for affected F5 products, you should only permit management access to F5 products over a secure network and limit shell access to trusted users. For more information about securing access to BIG-IP/Enterprise Manager systems, refer to K13309: Restricting access to the Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x - 13.x) and K13092: Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.
