Stormshield Network Security
CVSS v3.1 Overall Score: 3.9
This vulnerability could allow an attacker with a local access (ability to run on SNS his own code or script) to the appliance to potentially enable denial of service. This vulnerability is useless for an attacker who already have administrator access because an administrator is the highest privileges on the appliance. As this vulnerability can only be exploited locally, it can not provide an external attacker access to an SNS applianc
The following models are impacted :
SNS prior to 4.7.0
In order to mitigate the risk of exploitation keep your appliance updated.
As stated in the analysis, this vulnerability can only be exploited locally. On SNS, local access are only granted to user with the highest privileges. Therefore an exploitation of this vulnerability is useless to a SNS local user.
Nevertheless, a fix for this vulnerability has been delivered in the version 4.7.0.
