Summary

A vulnerability in Java deserialization used by Cisco Secure Access Control
System (ACS) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute
arbitrary commands on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insecure deserialization of user-supplied content
by the affected software. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by
sending a crafted serialized Java object. An exploit could allow the attacker
to execute arbitrary commands on the device with root privileges.
Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are
no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

This advisory is available at the following link:

The CVSSv3 score assigned to this vulnerability is based on Cisco Secure ACS
releases prior to 5.8 Patch 7.  Cisco Secure ACS systems running release 5.8
Patch 7 or Patch 8, require authentication in order to exploit this
vulnerability.  The CVSSv3 score assigned to Cisco Secure ACS systems running
release 5.8 Patch 7 or Patch 8 is Base 8.8:
CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H

Workarounds

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Fixed Software

Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerability
described in this advisory. Customers may only install and expect support for
software versions and feature sets for which they have purchased a license. By
installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such software upgrades,
customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco software license:
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/end-user-license-agreement.html
Additionally, customers may only download software for which they have a valid
license, procured from Cisco directly, or through a Cisco authorized reseller
or partner. In most cases this will be a maintenance upgrade to software that
was previously purchased. Free security software updates do not entitle
customers to a new software license, additional software feature sets, or
major revision upgrades.
When considering software upgrades, customers are advised to regularly consult
the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the Cisco Security
Advisories and Alerts page, to determine exposure and a complete upgrade
solution.
In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to be upgraded contain
sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software
configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release. If
the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco
Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance providers.
Customers Without Service Contracts
Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service
contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but are
unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should
obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco TAC:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/web/tsd-cisco-worldwide-contacts.html

Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared to
provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free upgrade.

Fixed Releases

This vulnerability is fixed in Cisco Secure ACS 5.8.0.32.9 Cumulative Patch.
The software can be downloaded from the Software Center on Cisco.com by
navigating to
Products > Security > Network Visibility and Enforcement > Secure Access
Control System > Secure Access Control System 5.8.
