Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code.

In Pulse Secure Pulse Desktop Client and Network Connect, an attacker could access session tokens to replay and spoof sessions, and as a result, gain unauthorized access as an end user, a related issue to CVE-2019-1573.
