Cisco patched two critical vulnerabilities in Redundancy Configuration Manager for StarOS software. Exploitation of one of the vulnerabilities is not required to exploit the other vulnerability.

An attacker could exploit the remote code execution vulnerability (CVE-2022-20649) by connecting to the device and navigating to the service with debug mode enabled. This vulnerability in Cisco RCM for Cisco StarOS Software could allow an unauthenticated attacker to perform remote code execution on the application with root-level privileges in the context of the configured container.

The second vulnerability (CVE-2022-20648) is an Information Disclosure Vulnerability that exists because of a debug service that incorrectly listens to and accepts incoming connections. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by connecting to the debug port and executing debug commands. A successful exploit could result in the disclosure of confidential information that should be restricted.
