A vulnerability exists in the PAN-OS web interface packet capture management that could allow an authenticated user to inject arbitrary commands. (Ref # PAN-81892 / CVE-2017-15940)
PAN-OS contains a vulnerability that may allow for post authentication command injection
PAN-OS 6.1.18 and earlier, PAN-OS 7.0.18 and earlier, PAN-OS 7.1.13 and earlier, PAN-OS 8.0.5 and earlier
PAN-OS 6.1.19 and later, PAN-OS 7.0.19 and later, PAN-OS 7.1.14 and later, PAN-OS 8.0.6 and later
This issue affects the management interface of the device and is strongly mitigated by following best practices for the isolation of management interfaces for security appliances. We recommend that the management interface be isolated and strictly limited only to security administration personnel through either network segmentation or using the IP access control list restriction feature within PAN-OS.
Palo Alto Networks would like to thank Won Lae Lee from Samsung for reporting this issue
