NOTE: This vulnerability affects Cisco ASA Software that is running on any Cisco product that has web management access enabled.

On December 19th, Cisco identified a vulnerability in the authorization subsystem of ASA Software on Cisco products. This vulnerability would allow an authenticated, but unprivileged, remote attacker to perform privileged actions by using the web management interface, if enabled.
