Description

The version of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Central Software running on the remote host is prior to 1.3(1c). It is, therefore, affected by a flaw in its web framework due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to execute arbitrary commands on the underlying operating system.
