ACS Express upgrade for native Linux OS

I'm running ACS Express A recent security scan flagged the ACS as running outdated versions of Apache and Tomcat, plus other issues. Will the upgrade package perform an update on these components? If so, what will be the updated versions, given that the upgrade package is over one year old? Are there any other alternatives for bringing the OS components up to date? Any advice is appreciated.

Re: ACS Express upgrade for native Linux OS

Hi ,

AFAIK, the OS components update will not be addressed in v5.0.1.Currently this is being looked at from the ACS 5 express team.

Please can you follow on this topic further with your Cisco SE contact or Cisco account team contact as they will have the resources to follow through with the ACS express unit for details and timeframe.

Re: ACS Express upgrade for native Linux OS

Hi Mike,

what are the exact vulnerabilities you're referring to?

I ask this as there are some known issues affecting also the ACS Express version, such as the following ones:

* CSCtg52362:

* CSCtg52369:

We don't have precise ETA for the fix yet, but you may monitor the above bugs to get notified about updates.

In any case, you have to wait for the next patch to be out to get this fixed.

In the meanwhile I would also recommend to mitigate the impact of those issues by preventing non-admin workstations to have access to the ACS GUI (e.g. with a firewall or ACL); in any case this is good practise as these web pages should not be reachable for non-admin staff (nor external internet users of course).

In any case, if you need for further assistance on this, please open a TAC case, so we can verify this in more details.
