CVSS Score:
7.8  AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:X/RL:X/RC:X

Summary

  o A vulnerability in the Bash shell implementation for Cisco NX-OS Software
    could allow an authenticated, local attacker to escalate their privilege
    level by executing commands authorized to other user roles. The attacker
    must authenticate with valid user credentials.

    The vulnerability is due to the incorrect implementation of a Bash shell
    command that allows role-based access control (RBAC) to be bypassed. An
    attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating to the device
    and entering a crafted command at the Bash prompt. A successful exploit
    could allow the attacker to escalate their privilege level by executing
    commands that should be restricted to other roles. For example, a dev-ops 
    user could escalate their privilege level to admin with a successful
    exploit of this vulnerability.

    Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There
    are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

    Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

    Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory
    are known to be affected by this vulnerability.

    Cisco has confirmed that this vulnerability does not affect the following
    Cisco products:

       Firepower 2100 Series Firewalls
       Firepower 4100 Series Next-Generation Firewalls
       Firepower 9300 Security Appliance
       MDS 9000 Series Multilayer Switches

Details

  o In addition to the NX-OS CLI, Cisco NX-OS Software can support access to
    the Bash shell, which interprets commands that a user enters or that are
    read from a shell script. Bash enables access to and is used to manage the
    underlying Linux system on the device. In Cisco NX-OS Software, the Bash
    shell is accessible from user accounts that are associated with the Cisco
    NX-OS dev-ops role or the Cisco NX-OS network-admin role.

    For additional information, customers can refer to the Bash chapter of the
    Cisco NX-OS Programmability Guide .

Indicators of Compromise

  o Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could result in a user
    without authorization making NX-OS device configuration changes. As part of
    best practices, administrators can use the show accounting log command and
    monitor for unexpected configuration modifications. A configuration change
    would be done within the Bash shell, and a typical logging entry would
    follow this format:

        type=update:id=console0:user=root:cmd=configure terminal ; feature nxapi (SUCCESS)

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Fixed Software

  o 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

    Customers are advised to upgrade to an appropriate release as indicated in
    the applicable table in this section. To help ensure a complete upgrade
    solution, customers should consider that this advisory is part of a bundled
    publication. The following page provides a complete list of bundle
    advisories: Cisco Event Response: March 2019 Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software
    Security Advisory Bundled Publication .

    In the following tables, the left column lists releases of Cisco FXOS
    Software or Cisco NX-OS Software. The center column indicates whether a
    release is affected by the vulnerability described in this advisory and the

Details

  o In addition to the NX-OS CLI, Cisco NX-OS Software can support access to
    the Bash shell, which interprets commands that a user enters or that are
    read from a shell script. Bash enables access to and is used to manage the
    underlying Linux system on the device. In Cisco NX-OS Software, the Bash
    shell is accessible from user accounts that are associated with the Cisco
    NX-OS dev-ops role or the Cisco NX-OS network-admin role.

    For additional information, customers can refer to the Bash chapter of the
    Cisco NX-OS Programmability Guide .

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Fixed Software

  o 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

    Customers are advised to upgrade to an appropriate release as indicated in
    the applicable table in this section. To help ensure a complete upgrade
    solution, customers should consider that this advisory is part of a bundled
    publication. The following page provides a complete list of bundle
    advisories: Cisco Event Response: March 2019 Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software
    Security Advisory Bundled Publication .

    In the following tables, the left column lists releases of Cisco FXOS
    Software or Cisco NX-OS Software. The center column indicates whether a
    release is affected by the vulnerability described in this advisory and the
    first release that includes the fix for this vulnerability. The right
    column indicates whether a release is affected by all the vulnerabilities
    described in this bundle and which release includes fixes for those
    vulnerabilities.

    Although the releases listed in the right column of each table include
    fixes for the vulnerabilities, the fix related to the Cisco NX-OS Software
    Image Signature Verification Vulnerability requires a BIOS upgrade as part
    of the software upgrade. Customers who are upgrading the software for any
    of the following products are advised to refer to this advisory for further
    details about the BIOS upgrade and affected product IDs and BIOS versions:
