^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.

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 should permit management access to F5
products only over a secure network, and limit access to only trusted users.
For more information about securing access to BIG-IP systems, refer to K13092:
Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.

The trusted users with access to the Configuration utility should take
precaution when selecting hyperlinks from untrusted or unknown sources. The
attack for this vulnerability is most likely to come in the form of a phishing
attack.
