#1151 Cisco patches DoS flaw in NCS 6000 routers
Cisco Systems today released patches for two products, including one for a vulnerability rated a high criticality in Cisco IOS XR for the Cisco Network Convergence System series routers.

The flaw rests in the management of system timer resources and could allow an attacker to remotely crash the router.

“An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a number of Secure Shell (SSH), Secure Copy Protocol (SCP), and Secure FTP (SFTP) management connections to an affected device,” Cisco said in its advisory. “An exploit could allow the attacker to cause a leak of system timer resources, leading to a nonoperational state and an eventual reload of the RP on the affected platform.”
