Description

When the BIG-IP system is licensed for Appliance mode, a user with either the Administrator or the Resource Administrator rolecan bypass Appliance mode restrictions.(CVE-2019-6635)

Impact

BIG-IP

This vulnerability allows local attackers with high-level privileges to overwrite arbitrary files. This behavior is possible only when the BIG-IP system runs in Appliance mode on any of the hardware platforms, and the user account is configured with Administrator or Resource Administrator role. Resource Administrator roles must have TMOS Shell ( tmsh ) access to perform the attack. Appliance mode is a licensed feature. This vulnerability does not affect the virtual platforms.

Enterprise Manager /BIG-IQ / F5 iWorkflow / Traffix SDC

There is no impact; F5 products are not affected by this vulnerability.
