Known Affected Versions:
16.0.0, 184.108.40.206, 16.0.1, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 16.1.0, 16.1.1
Opened: May 26, 2021 Severity: 3-Major
The Linux command 'ifconfig' or 'ip a' shows two devices 'http-tunnel' and 'socks-tunnel' that are for TMM internal use only.
As long as these devices are not used there is no impact aside from possibly causing confusion. Any attempt to use those devices from a host process fails or produces unpredictable results. These devices should not be exposed on the Linux host.
These interfaces show up regardless of the BIG-IP configuration.
The devices 'http-tunnel' and 'sock-tunnel' no longer show up on the Linux host.
