CWE-20

Summary

  o A vulnerability in the role-based access-checking mechanisms of
    Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Software could allow an authenticated,
    local attacker to execute arbitrary commands on an affected system.

    The vulnerability exists because the affected software lacks proper input
    and validation checks for certain file systems. An attacker could exploit
    this vulnerability by issuing crafted commands in the CLI of an affected
    system. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause other users
    to execute unwanted arbitrary commands on the affected system.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
