Summary

A vulnerability in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN subsystem of Cisco IOS Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition. The vulnerability is due to a failure to process certain types of HTTP requests. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker could submit crafted requests designed to consume memory to an affected device.
