CVSS Score:


  o A vulnerability in the API Framework of Cisco AsyncOS for Cisco Web
    Security Appliance (WSA) and Cisco Content Security Management Appliance
    (SMA) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to inject crafted
    HTTP headers in the web server's response.

    The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user input. An
    attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user to access a
    crafted URL and receive a malicious HTTP response. A successful exploit
    could allow the attacker to inject arbitrary HTTP headers into valid HTTP
    responses sent to a user's browser.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
