Description

The remote host is running a version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS prior to 4.1.16 / 5.0.10 / 5.1.5. It is, therefore, affected by an API key bypass flaw which allows a remote attacker to bypass the XML API key for a session that has already been authorized.

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