Summary

A vulnerability in the log file handling for Cisco Prime Infrastructure could
allow an authenticated, remote attacker to change and modify the system log 
file. The log file could have executable code added to it that could be 
executed when the log file is viewed.

The vulnerability is due to lack of proper input validation when the system 
log file is referenced. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by 
crafting an HTTP request with specially formatted HTTP payload. An exploit 
could allow the attacker to execute remote code on the affected system.
