Concurrent Execution using Shared Resource with Improper Synchronization ('Race Condition')
Race condition in the Measurement, Aggregation, and Correlation Engine (MACE) implementation in Cisco IOS 15.4(2)T3 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (device reload) via crafted network traffic that triggers improper handling of the timing of process switching and Cisco Express Forwarding (CEF) switching, aka Bug ID CSCul48736.
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.
