The Appliance mode iControl REST contains the CVE-2022-41800 authenticated remote code execution through RPM spec injection vulnerability. An authenticated user with appropriate user credentials assigned to the Administrator role can ignore restrictions in Appliance mode.
Users who are authenticated with iControl SOAP’s basic authentication and have at least the resource administrator role privilege may be duped into taking important actions by an attacker. Only the control plane, not the data plane, can be used by an attacker to take advantage of this vulnerability. The vulnerability has the potential to compromise the entire system if it is used.
