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: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionA denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in Cisco IOS Access Points due to a lack of complete error handling condition for client authentication requests sent to a targeted interface configured for FT. An unauthenticated, adjacent attacker can exploit this issue, by sending crafted authentication request traffic to the targeted interface, to cause the device to restart.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
