The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
There is a vulnerability in how Cisco routers handle CDP. By sending
a large amount of CDP neighbor announcements it is possible to consume
all of the router's available memory.
Note that a device would need to be configured to use CDP and an
attacker would need to be on the same segment as the target router in
order to exploit this vulnerability.
