to improper handling of UDP RSVP packets in the Resource Reservation
Protocol (RSVP) feature. An unauthenticated, remote attacker, via
specially-crafted UDP RSVP packets sent to port 1698, can trigger an
interface queue wedge, resulting in a loss of connectivity, loss of
routing protocol adjacency, and other denial of service conditions.
