A cleartext transmission of sensitive information vulnerability in Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS Panorama that discloses an authenticated PAN-OS administrator’s PAN-OS session cookie. When an administrator issues a context switch request into a managed firewall with an affected PAN-OS Panorama version, their PAN-OS session cookie is transmitted over cleartext to the firewall. An attacker with the ability to intercept this network traffic between the firewall and Panorama can access the administrator’s account and further manipulate devices managed by Panorama.
This issue affects:
PAN-OS 7.1 versions earlier than 7.1.26;
PAN-OS 8.0 versions earlier than 8.0.21;
PAN-OS 8.1 versions earlier than 8.1.13;
PAN-OS 9.0 versions earlier than 9.0.6;
and PAN-OS 9.1 versions earlier than 9.1.1.
