Description

The version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS running on the remote host is 8.1.x prior to 8.1.13 or 9.0.x prior to 9.0.7. It is, therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to upload a corrupted PAN-OS configuration and potentially execute code with root privileges.
