Cisco Security Advisory - Cisco IOS Software Resource Reservation Protocol Interface Queue Wedge Vulnerability (cisco-sa-20130925-rsvp)
Cisco IOS Software Resource Reservation Protocol Interface Queue Wedge Vulnerability

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20130925-rsvp

Revision 1.0

For Public Release 2013 September 25 16:00  UTC (GMT)
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary
=======

A vulnerability in the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) feature of Cisco IOS
Software and Cisco IOS XE Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
trigger an interface queue wedge on the affected device.

The vulnerability is due to improper parsing of UDP RSVP packets. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability by sending UDP port 1698 RSVP packets to the vulnerable
device. An exploit could cause Cisco IOS Software and Cisco IOS XE Software to
incorrectly process incoming packets, resulting in an interface queue wedge, which
can lead to loss of connectivity, loss of routing protocol adjacency, and other
denial of service (DoS) conditions.

Cisco has released free software updates that address this vulnerability.

Workarounds that mitigate this vulnerability are available.
