Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software and Firepower Threat Defense Software AnyConnect Access Control List Bypass Vulnerabilities

Cisco Security Advisory

Multiple vulnerabilities in the per-user-override feature of Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Software and Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to bypass a configured access control list (ACL) and allow traffic that should be denied to flow through an affected device.

These vulnerabilities are due to a logic error that could occur when the affected software constructs and applies per-user-override rules. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by connecting to a network through an affected device that has a vulnerable configuration. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to bypass the interface ACL and access resources that should be protected.

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