CWE-264

Summary

Cisco Identity Services Engine versions prior to 2.0 contain a vulnerability 
that could allow a low-privileged authenticated, remote attacker to access 
specific web resources that are designed to be accessed only by 
higher-privileged administrative users.

The vulnerability occurs because specific types of web resources are not 
correctly filtered for administrative users with different privileges. An 
attacker could exploit this vulnerability by authenticating at a 
low-privileged account and then accessing the web resources directly. An 
exploit could allow the attacker to access web pages that are reserved for 
higher-privileged administrative users.

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

This advisory is available at the following link:
