Cisco Security Advisory: Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software H.323 Message Validation Denial of Service Vulnerability

Advisory ID:  cisco-sa-20160928-h323

Revison: 1.0

For Public Release: 2016 September 28 16:00  GMT

+------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary
=======

A vulnerability in the H.323 subsystem of Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to create a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to a failure to properly validate certain fields in an H.323 protocol suite message. When processing the malicious message, the affected device may attempt to access an invalid memory region, resulting in a crash. An attacker who can submit an H.323 packet designed to trigger the vulnerability could cause the affected device to crash and restart.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
