The remote device is affected by flaws that can allow a denial of service via a device reload.


According to the self-reported version, returned by a standard SNMP request, the version of the Cisco TelePresence VCS or Expressway Series device prior to 8.2. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in packet processing when processing IP packets at a high rate. This can allow a remote attacker to cause a kernel crash via specially crafted packets.

- A flaw in the SIP IX Channel is triggered when handling a specially crafted SDP packet. This can allow a remote attacker to cause a system reload. SIP IX Filtering must be enabled for the system to be affected.

- A flaw exists in the SIP module that can allow a remote attacker to cause a system reload via a specially crafted SIP packet. (CVE-2014-3370)
