The remote device is running a vulnerable IOS XE version.


The remote Cisco device is potentially affected by an issue related to the handling of certain parameters in Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) control messages sent to the ingress tunnel router (ITR) component. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this issue by sending specially crafted LISP control messages to cause a denial of service.
