1. Vulnerability Details

     Affected Vendor: Cisco
     Affected Product: Firepower Threat Management Console
     Affected Version: Cisco Fire Linux OS 6.0.1 (build 37/build 1213)
     Platform: Embedded Linux
     CWE Classification: CWE-73: External Control of File Name or Path
     Impact: Information Disclosure
     Attack vector: HTTP
     CVE-ID: CVE-2016-6435

2. Vulnerability Description

     An authenticated user can access arbitrary files on the local system.

3. Technical Description

     Requests that take a file path do not properly filter what files can
     be requested.  The webserver does not run as root, so files such as
     /etc/shadow are not readable.
