Multiple Issues with Cisco Arrowpoint Switches

by Phiber on January 31st, 2001 Cisco Arrowpoint switches suffer from a number of vulnerabilities once terminal access to the CLI (Command Line Interface) has been granted. The first vulnerability results in a temporary loss of service on the switch as it will cause the switch to automatically restart without warning. Once the restart is completed, the switch will also perform a 'Check Disk' on reload and thus extend the outage for another 5 minutes or so. The second vulnerability allows a user that does not have access to certain files to gain read access to them if the location is known in relation to the scripts directory.
