New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, IOS is affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability in the Multiprotocol Border Gateway Protocol (MP-BGP) for the Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) Ethernet VPN (EVPN) address family. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending BGP update messages with specific, malformed attributes to an affected device, to cause the device to crash.
