SISCO OSI Stack Vulnerability Scan Remote DoS

high Nessus Plugin ID 23814


The host is running a version of the SISCO OSI stack that can be crashed by a malformed packet.


SISCO's ICCP stack is used in many third-party ICCP servers including those sold by Siemens and Areva. The SISCO stack found in the host system does not properly handle malformed packets. A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to crash the ICCP server on the host.


Upgrade to the current version of SISCO stack version 4.x. Check with your SCADA/EMS vendor for additional information.
