Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch

Description

According to its self-reported version, IOS-XE is affected by a DoS vulnerability in the Umbrella Connector component of Cisco IOS XE Software for Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches due to insufficient error handling when parsing DNS requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a series of malicious DNS requests to an Umbrella Connector client interface of an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause a crash of the iosd process, which triggers a reload of the affected device and a DOS condition.

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