01020036:3: The requested database variable (icontrol.basic_auth) was not found

I'm trying to mitigate the SOAP vulnerability that just came out here:

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K94221585

I get the below error. Any ideas?

[root@bigip1:Active:In Sync] config # tmsh modify sys db icontrol.basic_auth value disable
01020036:3: The requested database variable (icontrol.basic_auth) was not found.

Thanks

Hi Bryan_T_,

This feature will be available in fixed versions.

To eliminate this vulnerability in the BIG-IP system, after installing a version listed in the Fixes introduced in column, you must disable Basic Authentication for iControl SOAP.

Which version of F5 you are running? You can verify the httpd.basic_auth  with these comamnd. 

BASH Mode command
getdb httpd.basic_auth

TMSH Mode command
tmsh list sys db httpd.basic_auth

If these are enabled then take recommended action based on f5
