Cisco Event Response: March 2016 Semiannual Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication

March 23, 2016

Cisco released its semiannual Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication on March 23, 2016. In direct response to customer feedback, Cisco releases bundles of Cisco IOS Software Security Advisories on the fourth Wednesday of the month in March and September of each calendar year.

The March 23, 2016, release of the Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication includes six Cisco Security Advisories that describe six vulnerabilities in Cisco IOS Software. Four of the advisories describe vulnerabilities that are common to both Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software. One advisory describes a vulnerability that also exists in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Software. Another advisory describes a vulnerability that also exists in Cisco NX-OS Software. All the vulnerabilities have a Security Impact Rating of "High." Exploits of the individual vulnerabilities could result in a memory leak or a denial of service (DoS) condition.
