Cisco IOS Clientless SSL VPN DoS

low Nessus Plugin ID 61576


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.


The remote Cisco IOS device is configured for clientless SSL VPN. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to an unspecified flaw that causes a device reload when using a web browser to refresh the SSL VPN portal page. A remote, authenticated attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service.
