The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) Software is vulnerable to a
denial of service (DoS) and potentially an arbitrary code execution
attack from a specially crafted IPv6 packet. The packet must be sent
from a local network segment. Only devices that have been explicitly
configured to process IPv6 traffic are affected. Upon successful
exploitation, the device may reload or be open to further exploitation.
Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability
for all affected customers.
