The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
The Cisco Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP) feature in Cisco IOS
contains a vulnerability that can result in a restart of the device or
possible remote code execution.
NHRP is a primary component of the Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private
Network (DMVPN) feature.
NHRP can operate in three ways: at the link layer (Layer 2), over
Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and multipoint GRE (mGRE) tunnels
and directly on IP (IP protocol number 54). This vulnerability affects
all three methods of operation.
NHRP is not enabled by default for Cisco IOS.
