The Network Time Protocol (NTP) library has been found to contain a vulnerability CVE-2017-6460. Palo Alto Networks software makes use of the vulnerable library and may be affected. This issue only affects the management plane of the firewall. (Ref # PAN-76130 / CVE-2017-6460)
Successful exploitation of this issue requires an attacker to be on the management interface.
PAN-OS 6.1, PAN-OS 7.0, PAN-OS 7.1, PAN-OS 8.0.3 and earlier
PAN-OS 8.0.4 or later
Palo Alto Networks recommends to implement best practice by allowing web interface access only to a dedicated management network. Additionally, restrict the set of IP addresses to a subset of authorized sources that you allow to interact with the management network.
