Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
Race condition in the Zone-Based Firewall in Cisco IOS 15.1 and 15.2, when IPS policies are configured, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (device crash) by sending IPv6 packets, aka Bug ID CSCtk53534.
CWE-362 - Race Condition
A race condition occurs in a shared memory program when two threads/processes access the same shared memory data, and at least one thread executes a write operation. This vulnerability manipulates the time to check vs. time to use (TOC/TOU) gap between the threads in the critical section to cause disorientation in the shared data. The impact can vary from compromising the confidentiality of the system to causing the system to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
