Hackers are scanning for and actively exploiting a vulnerability in Cisco ASA devices after a PoC exploit was published on Twitter.
This Cisco ASA vulnerability is cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability that is tracked as CVE-2020-3580.
Cisco first disclosed the vulnerability and issued a fix in October 2020. However, the initial patch for CVE-2020-3580 was incomplete, and a further fix was released in April 2021.
A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the interface or allow the attacker to access sensitive, browser-based information, says Cisco’s advisory.
