According to its self-reported version, the version of Cisco IOS running on the remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) implementation due to improper handling of RSVP packets. A remote attacker can exploit this issue by sending specially crafted RSVP packets to cause the device to reload.
