The CVE-ID tracking this issue is: CVE-2020-24333
CVSSv3.1 Base Score: 6.5 (CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)


This advisory documents the impact of a vulnerability in Arista’s CloudVision Portal (CVP). The effect of this vulnerability is that users with “read-only” or greater access rights to the Configlet Management module can download files not intended for access, located on the CVP server, by accessing a specific API. This API can only be accessed by authenticated users.

The access rights of a given user are based on the user’s assigned role. “network-operators” have “read-only” access rights to all modules (including Configlet Management) and any user with a network-operator role is therefore affected. The “network-admins” role is affected as well due to its access rights to all modules. If a custom role has been configured, the associated access rights can be viewed by opening the /cv/settings/aaa-roles URL on the CVP Web GUI.

The following steps detail how the access rights for a user “test_user” with role “Test Role” can be viewed from the CVP Web GUI:

1) Check the assigned role(s) for a given user from /cv/settings/aaa-users:

2) View the access rights of the concerned role from /cv/settings/aaa-roles:

This vulnerability was discovered internally and there has been no report of exploitation in the field.
