Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description

According to its self-reported version, IOS is affected by a DoS vulnerability in the ISDN subsystem due to insufficient input validation when the ISDN Q.931 messages are processed. An unauthenticated, adjacent attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a malicious ISDN Q.931 message to an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause the process to crash, resulting in a DoS condition.

Please see the included Cisco BID and Cisco Security Advisory for more information.
