Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
The General Responder implementation in the IP Service Level Agreement (SLA) feature in Cisco IOS 15.2 and IOS XE 3.1.xS through 3.4.xS before 3.4.5S and 3.5.xS through 3.7.xS before 3.7.2S allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (device reload) via crafted (1) IPv4 or (2) IPv6 IP SLA packets on UDP port 1167, aka Bug ID CSCuc72594.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
