A vulnerability in the application programming interface (API) of Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to create false system notifications for administrators.
The vulnerability is due to insufficient protection of API functions. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending modified attribute-value
pairs back to the affected system. An exploit could allow the attacker to trick an administrative user into performing a malicious task on behalf of the attacker.
Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. Workarounds that address this vulnerability are not available.
