^1The CVSSv3 score link takes you to a resource outside of AskF5, and it is
possible that the document may be removed without our knowledge.
^2In BIG-IP APM 13.1.0 and later, you can update the APM Clients components
independently from BIG-IP software.  For more information, refer to K52547540:
Updating the BIG-IP Edge Client for the BIG-IP APM system. To address this
vulnerability in BIG-IP 13.1.0 and later, download and install an APM Clients
version listed in the Fixes introduced in column and redeploy to end users.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, you can configure the following Windows
registry entries on the client machine connecting to the BIG-IP APM system to
disallow several Internet Explorer keyboard short cuts. To do so, perform the
following procedure:

For more information about configuring registry entries, refer to the Using the
Registry documentation on the Microsoft Docs website.

Note: This link takes you to a resource outside of AskF5, and it is possible
that the document may be removed without our knowledge.

Impact of action: Performing the following procedure should not have a negative
impact on your client system.

 1. Log in to the Windows client machine.
 2. To open the Registry Editor, select and hold (or right-click) Start 
    and select Run.
 3. For Open, enter regedit, then select OK.
 4. Edit the registry entries as follows:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\
    Restrictions]
    "NoFileOpen"=dword:00000001
    "NoFileNew"=dword:00000001
    "NoOpeninNewWnd"=dword:00000001

 5. Save the entries and exit the Registry Editor.
