Cisco IOS Software is affected by a denial of service vulnerability
that may allow a remote unauthenticated attacker to cause an affected
device to reload or hang. The vulnerability may be triggered by a TCP
segment containing crafted TCP options that is received during the TCP
session establishment phase. In addition to specific, crafted TCP
options, the device must have a special configuration to be affected
by this vulnerability. Cisco has released free software updates that
address this vulnerability.
