Description

The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 7.1.x prior to 8.1.14 or 8.0.x prior to 8.1.14 or 8.1.x prior to 8.1.14 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.9. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability.

  • A missing authorization vulnerability in the management server component of PAN-OS Panorama allows a remote unauthenticated user to inject messages into the management server ms.log file. This vulnerability can be leveraged to obfuscate an ongoing attack or fabricate log entries in the ms.log file This issue affects: All versions of PAN-OS 7.1 and 8.0; PAN-OS 8.1 versions earlier than 8.1.14; PAN-OS 9.0 versions earlier than 9.0.9. (CVE-2020-1996)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application
