Summary

  * A vulnerability in the Guest Portal login page of Cisco Identity Services
    Engine (ISE) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to perform
    multiple login attempts in excess of the configured login attempt limit.

    The vulnerability is due to insufficient server-side login attempt limit
    enforcement. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending
    modified login attempts to the Guest Portal login page. An exploit could
    allow the attacker to perform brute-force password attacks on the ISE Guest
    Portal.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
