A weakness has been reported in Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA), which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
The weakness is caused due to Cisco ASA not correctly sanitising log messages of the "test aaa-server" command before sending them to syslog. This can lead to the disclosure of sensitive information like usernames and passwords.
The error occurs when a user with privilege level 15 or above executes the "test aaa-server" command and logging level 5 (notifications) is activated.
Solution: Update to 22.214.171.124 for the 8.0 train, 126.96.36.199 for the 7.2 train, 188.8.131.52 for the 7.1 train, and 184.108.40.206 for the 7.0 train.
