Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls


Severity Medium
Score 5/10


The sccp-protocol component in Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC) 7.0 through 8.6 does not limit the rate of SCCP messages to Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM), which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via vectors that trigger (1) on hook and (2) off hook messages, as demonstrated by a Plantronics headset, aka Bug ID CSCti40315.

CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls

CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
