The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
Cisco IOS Software contains a vulnerability in the Smart Install
feature that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause
a reload of an affected device if the Smart Install feature is
enabled. The vulnerability is triggered when an affected device
processes a malformed Smart Install message on TCP port 4786. Cisco
has released free software updates that address this vulnerability. A
workaround may be available in some versions of Cisco IOS Software if
the Smart Install feature is not needed.
