critical Nessus Plugin ID 89033
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) or device running IOS / IOS XE is affected by one of the following vulnerabilities in the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) implementation :

- An overflow condition exists in both the IKE and IKEv2 implementations due to improper validation of user-supplied input when handling UDP packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via specially crafted UDP packets, to cause a buffer overflow condition, resulting in a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-1287)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the IKEv2 implementation due to improper handling of fragmented IKEv2 packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via specially crafted UDP packets, to cause the device to reload. (CVE-2016-1344)

Solution

Upgrade to the relevant fixed version referenced in Cisco Security Advisories cisco-sa-20160210-asa-ike and cisco-sa-20160323-ios-ikev2.
