Critical Security Vulnerability Fixed in Cisco Unified Communications Solutions

A significant security vulnerability CVE202420253 in Ciscos Unified Communications and Contact Centre Solutions products has been fixed with patches.

A significant security vulnerability CVE202420253 in Ciscos Unified Communications and Contact Centre Solutions products has been fixed with patches. An unauthorised remote attacker may be able to run arbitrary code on a compromised device thanks to this vulnerability. The problem stems from the incorrect handling of data supplied by the user, which makes it possible for a threat actor to transmit a carefully constructed message to a listening port. If the attack is successful, the underlying operating system may be able to execute arbitrary instructions with the rights of the web services user. Cisco suggests that customers block access by implementing access control lists ACLs or applying the updates as soon as possible. Read More..
