0day padding oracle exploit on PAN-OS master key decryption?

L2 Linker

Ran across this and am wondering if this is truly a new 0 Day or related to a previous RCE from a little while back regarding the default Master Key?  https://twitter.com/rqu50/status/1554566757704089600  There is proof of concept code for this.

Hi @KurtHinson ,


Thanks for bringing this to the LiveCommunity's attention. I would also recommend bringing this up with your SE to raise more awareness towards the ability of this code to determine whether or not a default master key is being used. It does not look like an immediate risk for RCE, but for best practice please modify the master key prior to deploying firewalls in your environment.
