Synopsis

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

Description

According to its self-reported version, the version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence Server installed on the remote host has a denial of service vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this by creating a large number of connections to the SIP ports (TCP 5060, and 5061) on the device resulting in excessive memory consumption. The device must be restarted to fix the denial of service condition.

Solution

Upgrade to Cisco Unified Presence Server 8.6(5)SU1 / 9.1(2) or later.
