Cisco IOS Software contains a vulnerability in the IP version 6 (IPv6)

remote attacker to cause a reload of an affected device that has IPv6
operation enabled. The vulnerability is triggered when an affected
device processes a malformed IPv6 packet. Cisco has released free
software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no
workarounds to mitigate this vulnerability.
