The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


According to its self-reported version, Cisco Firepower Threat Defense Software is affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability in the web interface due to a lack of proper input validation of HTTP requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted HTTP request, in order to cause a DoS condition.

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