New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Cisco IOS XE device is missing vendor-supplied security patches, and it is configured to use the Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) or Session Border Controller (SBC) features. It is, therefore, affected by an integer underflow condition in the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) library due to improper validation of certain fields of SRTP packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted SRTP packets, to cause packet decryption to fail, resulting in a denial of service condition.

Solution

Apply the relevant patch or workaround referenced in Cisco Security Advisory cisco-sa-20160420-libsrtp.
