The remote switch has a denial of service vulnerability.
The remote host appears to be a Cisco Catalyst switch. This device
runs an undocumented TCP service. Sending a carriage return to this
port causes the switch to immediately reset. A remote attacker could
repeatedly exploit this to disable the switch.
