Upgrading to a New Software Release

For general information about upgrading to a new software release, see Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.3 T Installation and Upgrade Procedures located on Cisco.com.

Feature Set Tables

The Cisco IOS software is packaged in feature sets consisting of software images, depending on the platform. Each feature set contains a specific set of Cisco IOS features. Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR6 supports the same feature sets as Releases 12.3 and 12.3(7)T.


Caution The Cisco IOS images with strong encryption (including, but not limited to, 168-bit [3DES] data encryption feature sets) are subject to United States government export controls and have limited distribution. Strong encryption images to be installed outside the United States will likely require an export license. Customer orders can be denied or subject to delay as a result of United States government regulations. When applicable, the purchaser/user must obtain local import and use authorizations for all encryption strengths. Please contact your sales representative or distributor for more information, or send an e-mail to export@cisco.com.

Table 3 through Table 6 list the feature and feature sets supported in the Cisco IOS Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR6.

The tables use the following conventions:

In—The number in the "In" column indicates the Cisco IOS release in which the feature was introduced. For example, "12.4(11)XJ" indicates that the feature was introduced in 12.4(11)XJ. If a cell in this column is empty, the feature was included in a previous release or in the initial base release.

Yes—The feature is supported in the software image.

No—The feature is not supported in the software image.


Note These feature set tables contain only a list of selected features, which are cumulative for Release 12.3(7)nn early deployment releases only (nn identifies each early deployment release). The tables do not list all features in each image; additional features are listed in Cross-Platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)T and in Release 12.3(7)T Cisco IOS documentation.

The Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR1 supports the same software features that are supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR.

New Software Features in Release 12.3(7)XR

The following sections describe the new software features supported by the Cisco 1700 series routers for Release 12.3(7)XR.

X.25 Station Type for ISDN D-Channel Interface

The X.25 Station Type for ISDN D-channel Interface feature permits configuration of the X.25 station type for the ISDN D-channel interface with the encapsulation x25 command on this interface. This feature allows the mapping of closed user group (CUG) of the X.25 packets that originates from the point-of-sale devices terminating the ISDN-BRI D-channel interface configured as an X.25 data communications equipment (DCE) station of Cisco routers with an ISDN BRI interface.

The default encapsulation of the BRI D-channel interface is X.25 encapsulation in data terminal equipment (DTE) mode.

For more details, see the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios123/123newft/123limit/123x/123xr6/x25enc_d.htm

SAA ICMP Echo Operation Enhancement

The Service Assurance Agent (SAA) Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo operation is enhanced to allow user to specify the interface whose IP address should be used as source IP address. It introduces a new keyword source interface to the type echo protocol command-line interface (CLI) to specify the interface whose IP address will be used as source IP address.

The command syntax is as follows:

type echo protocol protocol-type target {[source-ipaddr ip-address] | source-interface interface-name}

Easy VPN Remote Phase 4.0 Enhancements

The following sections describe the Easy Virtual Private Network (VPN) Remote Phase 4.0 feature enhancements.

Easy VPN with 802.1x Authentication

The Easy VPN with 802.1x Authentication feature enables split tunneling, which makes it possible for a corporate employee to connect to the corporate network while other persons using the same Internet connection will not have access to the protected tunnel to the corporate network.

For more information, see the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/iosw/prodlit/cliet_wp.htm

Easy VPN Remote with Certificates

Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR and later releases support the Easy VPN Remote with Certificates feature, which uses public key infrastructure (PKI) and certificates to establish an IP Security (IPSec) connection.


Note While configuring PKI on the remote router, use the same subject-name command for the subject name in the certificate; otherwise, the PKI will fail.


Easy VPN Remote Backup Server List Autoconfiguration

The Easy VPN Remote feature allows configuration of multiple servers that the remote router will attempt to connect to. With this feature, the Easy VPN Server can "push" the server list to Easy VPN Remote clients, thus eliminating the need to manually configure the list of servers on all the Easy VPN Remote clients. Instead, only one server needs to be preconfigured on Easy VPN Remote client, and the rest of the server list will be pushed from the server to Easy VPN Remote client once the connection is established.

Easy VPN Remote Management Enhancements

The Easy VPN Remote Management Enhancements feature simplifies the remote management of a Cisco IOS router that is acting as an Easy VPN Remote. This feature makes fully manageable the IP address that is pushed from the server at connect time. The pushed address is automatically assigned to a loopback interface that is dynamically created. This enables ping, Telnet, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and even dynamic routing to use the pushed IP address as the IP address for reaching the router. The user can design central site management solutions that use the pushed IP address as the IP address for reaching the remote routers. The Easy VPN Remote Management Enhancements feature can be enabled in both client and network extension modes.

Easy VPN Remote Load Balancing

When configured with the Easy VPN Remote Load Balancing feature, an Easy VPN server will accept an incoming request from the Easy VPN Remote router at its virtual IP address. When the server is heavily loaded, it will send a "notify" message to the remote router which contains an IP address that represents a new peer that the client can connect to. The Easy VPN Remote router receives this "redirect" message and will attempt to connect to a different server at the address contained in the notify message.

Easy VPN Remote VLAN Support

The Easy VPN Remote Virtual LAN (VLAN) Support feature allows you to define a VLAN as an Easy VPN Remote inside, or private interface. This VLAN may be an internal VLAN on the remote router. That is, when defined, IP Security (IPSec) security association (SA) will be established for the VLAN inside interface.

Easy VPN Remote Multiple Subnet Support

The Easy VPN Remote Multiple Subnet Support feature allows multiple subnets to be defined to Easy VPN on a single inside interface on the Easy VPN remote router. The subnets can be multiple hops away from the inside LAN interface. The subnets must be manually configured because they cannot be learned by dynamic routing. The Easy VPN Remote Multiple Subnet Support feature is supported in client mode only.

Easy VPN Remote and Server on Same Interface

The Easy VPN Remote and Server on Same Interface features allows you to configure Easy VPN Remote functions and Easy VPN Server functions on the same interface. A typical application is a remote router that acts as a client to the Easy VPN server at headquarters, while also acting as a server for local software clients. Such a router has a single public interface to the Internet; both the server and client functions are configured on the same interface.

Easy VPN Remote and Site to Site on Same Interface

The Easy VPN Remote and Site to Site on Same Interface feature allows you to configure Easy VPN Remote functions and site-to-site (standard IPSec) functions on the same interface. A typical application is a remote router that acts as a client to the Easy VPN server at headquarters, while also having a site-to-site tunnel.

Easy VPN Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) via Policy Push

The Easy VPN Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) via Policy Push feature allows PFS for the Easy VPN connection to be configured dynamically the connect time by means of MODCFG policy push from the server.

Easy VPN Remote Phase 4.1 Enhancements

The following sections describe the Easy Virtual Private Network (VPN) Remote Phase 4.1 feature enhancements.

Easy VPN Dial Backup

The Easy VPN Dial Backup feature enables Cisco IOS software to identify when the primary Internet connection goes down and initiate a dial-on-demand routing (DDR) connection to a preconfigured destination from any alternative WAN/LAN port. The Easy VPN Dial Backup feature is typically used for deployments in which a remote router has a single dedicated VPN connection over the Internet, but can dial up to an ISP if the primary link goes down.

The Easy VPN Dial Backup feature allows an object to be tracked (by IP address or host name) by means of periodic pings and allows installation or removal of the static route, based on the state of the tracked object. If the Internet connectivity is lost—that is, if the pings fail—the default route for the primary interface is removed and the floating static route for the backup interface becomes the preferred route. This triggers the dialer interface to come up and connect to the ISP. While in backup mode, the pings are still sent to the primary interface. When the ping is successful, again the primary connection will be restored and back up tunnel will be disconnected. The dial-up connection will time out, based on the idle timer settings of the dialer interface.

An advantage of the Easy VPN Dial Backup feature is it works without requiring that a dynamic routing protocol t o be running across the VPN to test connectivity.

Easy VPN Remote Traffic Triggered Activation

The Easy VPN Remote Traffic Triggered Activation feature introduces a new method of activating Easy VPN tunnels, based on the user traffic.This feature brings up the tunnel only when there is traffic. This feature can also be used with an idle timer on the tunnel to bring the tunnel up or down when required.

CSCsf04754

Multiple Cisco products contain either of two authentication vulnerabilities in the Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) feature. These vulnerabilities can be exploited when processing a malformed SNMPv3 message. These vulnerabilities could allow the disclosure of network information or may enable an attacker to perform configuration changes to vulnerable devices. The SNMP server is an optional service that is disabled by default. Only SNMPv3 is impacted by these vulnerabilities. Workarounds are available for mitigating the impact of the vulnerabilities described in this document.

The United States Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) has assigned Vulnerability Note VU#878044 to these vulnerabilities.

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) identifier CVE-2008-0960 has been assigned to these vulnerabilities.

This advisory will be posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20080610-snmpv3.shtml

sCSCsj44081 Improvements in diagnostics and instrumentation

Symptom    Cisco IOS Software has been enhanced with the introduction of additional software checks to signal improper use of internal data structures. This enhancement was introduced in select Cisco IOS Software releases published after April 5, 2007.

Details   With the new enhancement in place, IOS will emit a %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY error message whenever it detects an inconsistency in its internal data structures. This is a new error message. The following is an example.

The %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY error message is preceded by a timestamp

May 17 10:01:27.815 UTC: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error

The error message is then followed by a traceback.

It is important to note that this error message does not imply that packet data is being corrupted. It does, however provide an early indicator of other conditions that can eventually lead to poor system performance or an IOS restart.

Recommended Action   Collect "show tech-support" command output and open a service request with the Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or designated support organization. Pay particular attention to any other error messages or error symptoms that accompany the%DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY message and note those to your support contact.

CSCsc44237 memory leak in client applications iterating over an empty idb list

This caveat consists of two symptoms, two conditions, and two workarounds:

Symptom 1:   A switch or router that is configured with a PA-A3 ATM port adapter may eventually run out of memory. The leak occurs when the FlexWAN or VIP that contains the PA-A3 port adapter is removed from the switch or router and not re-inserted.

The output of the show processes memory command shows that the "ATM PA Helper" process does not have sufficient memory. The output of the show memory allocating-process totals command shows that the "Iterator" process holds the memory.

Condition 1:    This symptom is observed on a Cisco switch or router that runs a Cisco IOS software image that contains the fixes for caveats CSCeh04646 and CSCeb30831. A list of the affected releases can be found at http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/onebug.pl?bugid=CSCeh04646 and http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/onebug.pl?bugid=CSCeb30831.

Cisco IOS software releases that are not listed in the "First Fixed-in Version" fields at these locations are not affected.

Workaround 1:    Either do not remove the PA-A3 ATM port adapter from the FlexWAN or VIP or re-insert the PA-A3 ATM port adapter promptly. The memory leak stops immediately when you re-insert the PA-A3 ATM port adapter.

Symptom 2:    A switch or router that has certain PIM configurations may eventually run out of memory. The output of the show processes memory command shows that the "PIM process" does not have sufficient memory. The output of the show memory allocating-process totals command shows that the "Iterator" process holds the memory.

Condition 2:    This symptom observed on a Cisco router that runs a Cisco IOS software image that contains the fix for caveat CSCef50104.

A list of the affected releases can be found at http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/onebug.pl?bugid=CSCef50104.

Cisco IOS software releases that are not listed in the "First Fixed-in Version" field at this location are not affected.

Workaround 2:    When the ip multicast-routing command is configured, enable at least one interface for PIM. When the ip multicast-routing vrf vrf-name command is configured, enter the ip vrf forwarding vrf-name command on at least one interface that has PIM enabled.

CSCsi67763 IPS evasion using Unicode encoding for HTTP-based attacks 

Symptom    The U.S. Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) has reported a network evasion technique using full-width and half-width unicode characters that affects several Cisco products. The US-CERT advisory is available at the following link:

http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/739224

By encoding attacks using a full-width or half-width unicode character set, an attacker can exploit this vulnerability to evade detection by an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) or firewall. This may allow the attacker to covertly scan and attack systems normally protected by an IPS or firewall.

Cisco response is posted at the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sr-20070514-unicode.shtml

CSCsg16908 IOS FTP Server Deprecation

Symptom    Multiple vulnerabilities exist in the Cisco IOS File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server feature. These vulnerabilities include Denial of Service, improper verification of user credentials and the ability to read or write any file in the device's filesystem, including the device's saved configuration, which may include passwords or other sensitive information.

The IOS FTP Server is an optional service that is disabled by default. Devices that are not specifically configured to enable the IOS FTP Server service are unaffected by these vulnerabilities.

This vulnerability does not apply to the IOS FTP Client feature.

CSCin95836 aarun Buffer overflow in NHRP protocol

The Cisco Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP) feature in Cisco IOS?? contains a vulnerability that can result in a restart of the device or possible remote code execution.

NHRP is a primary component of the Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Network (DMVPN) feature.

NHRP can operate in three ways: at the link layer (Layer 2), over Generic

Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and multipoint GRE (mGRE) tunnels and directly on IP (IP protocol number 54). This vulnerability affects all three methods of operation.

NHRP is not enabled by default for Cisco IOS.

This vulnerability is addressed by Cisco bug IDs CSCin95836 for non-12.2 mainline releases and CSCsi23231 for 12.2 mainline releases.

CSCsb93407 H323 port tcp 1720 still listening after call service stop

Symptom    When H323 call service stops, the router still listens on TCP port 1720 and completes connection attempts.

Conditions   This symptom occurs after H323 is disabled using the following configuration commands: voice service voip h323 call service stop

Workaround   Access can be blocked by deploying an interface access list that blocks access to TCP port 1720 for traffic that is destined for any of the IP addresses of the router.

For information about deploying access lists, see the "Transit Access Control Lists: Filtering at Your Edge" document at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/tacl.html

For further information about deploying access lists, see the "Protecting Your Core: Infrastructure Protection Access Control Lists" document at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/iacl.html.

CSCsh58082 SIP: A router may reload due to SIP traffic

Symptom    Cisco devices running an affected version of Internetwork Operating System (IOS) which supports Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) are affected by a vulnerability that may lead to a reload of the device when receiving a specific series of packets destined to port 5060.

This issue is compounded by a related bug which allows traffic to TCP 5060 and UDP port 5060 on devices not configured for SIP. There are no known instances of intentional exploitation of this issue. However,

Cisco has observed data streams that appear to be unintentionally triggering the vulnerability. Workarounds exist to mitigate the effects of this problem on devices which do not require SIP.

CSCsc72722 CBAC - firewall resets TCP idle timer upon receiving invalid TCP packets

Symptom    TCP connections that are opened through a Cisco IOS Firewall (CBAC) may not timeout.

Conditions   With Cisco IOS Firewall (CBAC) enabled, the TCP idle timer for a session may be reset even by TCP packets that fail TCP inspection and are subsequently dropped. This could lead to the TCP session not timing out.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCse24889 Malformed SSH version 2 packets may cause processor memory depletion

Symptom    Malformed SSH version 2 packets may cause a memory leak, causing the platform to operate under a degraded condition. Under rare circumstances, the platform may reload to recover itself.

Conditions   This symptom is observed on a Cisco platform that is configured for SSH version 2 after it has received malformed SSHv2 packets.

Workaround   As an interim solution until the affected platform can be upgraded to a Cisco IOS software image that contains the fix for caveatCSCse24889, configure SSH version 1 from the global configuration mode, as in the following example:


config t

ip ssh version 1
end

Alternate Workaround:    Permit only known trusted hosts and/or networks to connect to the router by creating a vty access list, as in the following example:


10.1.1.0/24 is a trusted network that
is permitted access to the router, all
other access is denied

access-list 99 permit 10.1.1.0 0.0.0.255
access-list 99 deny any

line vty 0 4
access-class 99 in
end

Further Problem Description:    For information about configuring vty access lists, see the Controlling Access to a Virtual Terminal Line document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6441/products_configuration_guide_chapte r09186a0080716ec2.html

CSCsg40567 Memory leak found with malformed tls/ssl packets in http core process

Symptom    Malformed SSL packets may cause a router to leak multiple memory blocks.

Conditions   This symptom is observed on a Cisco router that has the ip http secure server command enabled.

Workaround   Disable the ip http secure server command.

CSCse05736 A router running RCP can be reloaded with a specific packet

Symptom    A router that is running RCP can be reloaded by a specific packet.

Conditions   This symptom is seen under the following conditions: - The router must have RCP enabled. - The packet must come from the source address of the designated system configured to send RCP packets to the router. - The packet must have a specific data content.

Workaround   Put access lists on the edge of your network blocking RCP packets to prevent spoofed RSH packets. Use another protocol such as SCP. Use VTY ACLs.

CSCsc64976 HTTP server should scrub embedded HTML tags from cmd output

A vulnerability exists in the IOS HTTP server in which HTML code inserted into dynamically generated output, such as the output from a show buffers command, will be passed to the browser requesting the page. This HTML code could be interpreted by the client browser and potentially execute malicious commands against the device or other possible cross-site scripting attacks. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that a user browse a page containing dynamic content in which HTML commands have been injected.

Cisco will be making free software available to address this vulnerability for affected customers. There are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability.

CSCse56501 two sockets(IP V4 and V6) bound to the same UDP port not working.

A device running Cisco IOS software that has Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) enabled may be subject to a denial of service (DoS) attack. For the device to be affected by this vulnerability the device also has to have certain Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) User Datagram Protocol (UDP) services enabled. To exploit this vulnerability an offending IPv6 packet must be targeted to the device. Packets that are routed throughout the router can not trigger this vulnerability. Successful exploitation will prevent the interface from receiving any additional traffic. The only exception is Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) service, which if exploited, will cause the device to crash. Only the interface on which the vulnerability was exploited will be affected.

Cisco is providing fixed software to address this issue. There are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability.

This advisory is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20080326-IPv4IPv6.shtml.

Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) authentication on a device that is running certain versions of Cisco Internetworking Operating System (IOS) and configured with a fallback method of none can be bypassed.

Systems that are configured for other authentication methods or that are not configured with a fallback method of none are not affected.

Only the systems that are running certain versions of Cisco IOS are affected. Not all configurations using RADIUS and a fallback method of none are vulnerable to this issue. Some configurations using RADIUS, fallback method none, and an additional method are not affected.

Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability.

More details can be found in the security advisory which posted at the following URL http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050629-aaa.shtml

CSCeh13489

Symptoms: A router may reset its Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) session.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when a Cisco router that peers with other routers receives an Autonomous System (AS) path with a length that is equal to or greater than 255.

Workaround: Configure the bgp maxas limit command in such as way that the maximum length of the AS path is a value below 255. When the router receives an update with an excessive AS path value, the prefix is rejected and the event is recorded in the log.

CSCin74088

Problem: memory not being freed correctly for ezvpn_process.

Symptom: "sh processes memory <pid of ezvpn client process>" will display the memory not being freed for the ezvpn client process. Ezvpn works fine.

CSCsa40962

A Cisco IOS router acting as an EzVPN server that terminates vpn client sessions may experience a memory leak in the processor memory pool. This can be identified by an increasing amount of memory held by the Crypto IKMP process in the show process memory output.

Resolved Caveats - Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XR4

CSCef67682: Reception of certain IPv6 fragments with carefully crafted illegal contents may cause a router running Cisco IOS to reload if it has IPv6 configured. This applies to all versions of Cisco IOS that include support for IPv6.

The system may be protected by installing appropriate access lists to filter all IPv6 fragments destined for the system. For example:

  interface Ethernet0/0
    ipv6 traffic-filter nofragments in
  !
  ipv6 access-list nofragments
    deny ipv6 any <my address1> undetermined-transport
    deny ipv6 any <my address2> fragments
    permit ipv6 any any

This must be applied across all interfaces, and must be applied to all IPv6 addresses which the system recognizes as its own.

This will effectively disable reassembly of all IPv6 fragments. Some networks may rely on IPv6 fragmentation, so careful consideration should be given before applying this workaround.

CSCeg44078A: Cisco836 router may report a huge delay transmitting traffic on the two Ethernet interfaces (Ethernet 0 or 2). The problem has been observed with 12.3(7)XR3 with DMZ.

Workaround: Administratively shut down both the Ethernet0 and Ethernet2 interfaces and then administratively bring up both these interfaces one after the other.

CSCeg89937

Ethernet interface does not send ping replies after reload.

CSCeh89139

IPSEC real time DNS : unable to resolve peer hostname.

With the IPSEC realtime DNS feature, when resolving the hostname, the router tries to do a ISAKMP SA negotiation and both fail (negotiation and name resolving).

CSCed03333

CBAC FTP-data sessions remain in SIS_CLOSING state.

Workaround: Lowering the inspect FTP timeout and disabling CEF will reduce exposure. Bump certain out-of-order packets to process path for catch-up and then drop packets if unsuccessful.

CSCee47441

CBAC inspection causes software-forced reload.

When the Cisco IOS Firewall CBAC is configured, the router may have a software-forced reload caused by one of the inspections processed. This symptom is observed when the router is part of a DMVPN hub-spoke with a Cisco VoIP phone solution deployed on it, and the router is connected to the central office over the Internet. The Cisco VoIP phone runs the SKINNY protocol.

Workaround: None.

CSCee67450

BGP error msg trackback.

A device running Cisco IOS and enabled for the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is vulnerable to a DoS attack from a malformed BGP packet. Only devices with the command bgp log-neighbor-changes configured are vulnerable. The BGP protocol is not enabled by default, and must be configured in order to accept traffic from an explicitly defined peer. Unless the malicious traffic appears to be sourced from a configured, trusted peer, it would be difficult to inject a malformed packet.

Cisco has made free software available to address this problem. Please see the advisory available at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050126-bgp.shtml.

CSCef81501

Crash occurs while scaling L2TPv3 Xconnect commands on subinterfaces.

When L2TPv3 tunnels are scaled and the IP Path MTU Discovery feature is enabled, a memory leak and crash may occur. This symptom is observed when multiple Xconnect statements are applied in conjunction with the IP Path MTU Discovery feature in the pseudowire class.

Workaround: Do not enable the IP Path MTU Discovery feature in an L2TPv3 configuration.

CSCeg01740

Crash when L2TPv3 manual session delete.

A router crashes when you delete a manual static Xconnect service with L2TPv3 encapsulation.

Workaround: Do not delete a manual static Xconnect service with L2TPv3 encapsulation.

CSCef43691

L2TPv3 and UTI sessions doing PMTUD vulnerable to spoofed ICMP paks.

A document that describes how the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) could be used to perform a number of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks against the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) has been made publicly available. This document has been published through the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Internet Draft process, and is entitled "ICMP Attacks Against TCP" (draft-gont-tcpm-icmp-attacks-03.txt).

These attacks, which only affect sessions terminating or originating on a device itself, can be of three types:

1. Attacks that use ICMP "hard" error messages
2. Attacks that use ICMP "fragmentation needed and Don't Fragment (DF) bit set" messages, also known as Path Maximum Transmission Unit Discovery (PMTUD) attacks
3. Attacks that use ICMP "source quench" messages

Successful attacks may cause connection resets or reduction of throughput in existing connections, depending on the attack type.

Multiple Cisco products are affected by the attacks described in this Internet draft.

Cisco has made free software available to address these vulnerabilities. In some cases there are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability.

This advisory is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050412-icmp.shtml.

Cisco Feature Navigator is a web-based tool that enables you to quickly determine which Cisco IOS software images support a specific set of features and which features are supported in a specific Cisco IOS image. You can search by feature or release. Under the release section, you can compare releases side by side to display both the features unique to each software release and the features in common.

To access Cisco Feature Navigator, you must have an account on Cisco.com. If you have forgotten or lost your account information, send a blank e-mail to cco-locksmith@cisco.com. An automatic check will verify that your e-mail address is registered with Cisco.com. If the check is successful, account details with a new random password will be e-mailed to you. Qualified users can establish an account on Cisco.com by following the directions found at this URL:
