A vulnerability in the Cisco Mobility Services Engine (MSE) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to log in to the MSE with the default oracle account. This account does not have full administrator privileges.

The vulnerability is due to a user account that has a default and static password. This account is created at installation and cannot be changed or deleted without impacting the functionality of the system. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by remotely connecting to the affected system via SSH using this account. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to log in to the MSE using the default oracle account.
Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. A workaround that mitigates this vulnerability is available.
