SISCO OSI stack fails to properly handle malformed packets
A vulnerability exists in the SISCO OSI stack. If this vulnerability is successfully exploited, an attacker could cause a denial-of-service condition.
The SISCO OSI stack is a component of the SISCO MMS-EASE, ICCP Toolkit for MMS-EASE, AX-S4 MMS and AX-S4 ICCP products. The SISCO OSI stack fails to properly handle malformed packets. A remote attacker may be able to trigger this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted series of packets to a vulnerable SISCO OSI stack installation.
Note that a valid connection is needed to trigger this vulnerability.
A remote attacker can cause the OSI stack to terminate abnormally resulting in a denial-of-service condition requiring an application using the SISCO OSI stack and the SISCO OSI stack itself to be restarted.
