Description

A vulnerability in the Plug-and-Play (PnP) subsystem of the Cisco Aironet 1800, 2800, and 3800 Series Access Points running a Lightweight Access Point (AP) or Mobility Express image could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

  script_tag(name:"insight", value:"The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of PnP server responses.
The PnP feature is only active while the device does not contain a configuration, such as a first time boot or
after a factory reset has been issued. An attacker with the ability to respond to PnP configuration requests from
the affected device can exploit the vulnerability by returning malicious PnP responses. If a Cisco Application
Policy Infrastructure Controller - Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) is available on the network, the attacker would
need to exploit the issue in the short window before a valid PnP response was received.");
