Resolved Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.3(11)YZ2

CSCsd95616

Two crafted Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) packet vulnerabilities exist in Cisco IOS software that may lead to a denial of service (DoS) condition. Cisco has released free software updates that address these vulnerabilities. Workarounds that mitigate these vulnerabilities are available.

This advisory is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20080924-multicast.shtml.

CSCse56501

Symptom    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.

Workaround   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.

CSCsi01470

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.

For information about SSH, see the Configuring Secure Shell on Routers and Switches Running Cisco IOS document: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/ssh.shtml

CSCse85200 Inadequate validation of TLVs in cdp

CSCsg96319 reverse ssh eliminated telnet authention on VTY

Symptom    When a reverse SSH session is established with valid authentication credentials, anyone can obtain unprivileged Telnet access to a system without being authenticated. This situation affects only reverse SSH sessions when a connection is made with the

ssh -l userid :number ip-address command.

Conditions   This symptom is observed only when the Reverse SSH Enhancement is configured. This enhancement is documented at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/sec_user_services/configuration/guide/sec_rev_ssh_enhanmt_ps6350_TSD_Products_Configuration_Guide_Chapter.html

Workaround   Configure reverse SSH by entering the ip ssh port portnum rotary group command. This configuration is explained at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk583/tk617/technologies_q_and_a_item09186a0080267e0f.shtml#newq1

CSCsj66369 Traceback seen at rpmxf_dg_db_init

Symptom    Tracebacks seen while running metal_vpn_cases.itcl script

Conditions   A strcpy in the file 'rpmxf_dg_online.c' copies more bytes than the destination buffer size. Due to this we are getting data corruption tracebacks.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCsj66513 Traceback detected at DNQueuePeers

Symptom    Traceback found at DNQueuePeers

Conditions   While verifying the variable digit length dialing numbers for "Type National" and "Type International" in the numbering plan to be accepted by the network-side by using functionality/isdn/isdn_dialPlan script.

Workaround   There is no workaround

CSCsj44099 Router crashes if DSPFARM profile description is 128 characters long. 

Symptom    A cisco c3800 router can experience a memory corruption resulting in a crash if the description field under the "dspfarm profile" configuration matches the maximum of 128 characters.

Conditions   During configuration of the dspfarm profile through the CLI, a description that is 128 characters will cause a memory copy problem. If the user tries to display the results of the configuration using "show dspfarm profile", the router will crash trying to display the output.

Workaround   To prevent this problem configure the dspfarm profile description with 127 characters or less.

CSCsj52927 DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY message in show log

Symptom    DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY messages are seen in `show log'.

Conditions   The messages are seen when when the router comes up.

Resolved Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.3(11)YZ1

CSCek37177: The Cisco IOS Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) listener in certain versions of Cisco IOS software is vulnerable to a remotely-exploitable memory leak that may lead to a denial of service condition.

This vulnerability only applies to traffic destined to the Cisco IOS device. Traffic transiting the Cisco IOS device will not trigger this vulnerability.

Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability for affected customers.

Workaround: 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-20070124-crafted-tcp.shtml

CSCsd40334: Processing a specially crafted IPv6 Type 0 Routing header can crash a device running Cisco IOS software. This vulnerability does not affect IPv6 Type 2 Routing header which is used in mobile IPv6. IPv6 is not enabled by default in Cisco IOS.

Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability for affected customers.

Workaround: There are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability. The workaround depends on if Mobile IPv6 is used and what version on Cisco IOS is being currently used.

CSCsb93407: voice-h323 ealyon H323 port tcp 1720 still listening after call service stop

Symptoms: With H323 call service stopped, the router still listens on tcp port 1720 and completes connection attempts.

Conditions: After H323 is disabled using the 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:

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:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/iacl.html

For information about using control plane policing to block access to TCP port 1720, see the "Deploying Control Plane Policing White Paper:"

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6642/products_white_paper0900aecd804fa16a.shtml

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

Symptoms: 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.

CSCsb11849: security ealyon CoPP: Need support for malformed IP options

Symptoms: CoPP policy configured to drop packets with IP options will ignore packets with malformed IP options

Conditions: CoPP configured to filter ip packets with IP options

Workaround: Do not use IP option ACL filtering with CoPP. Instead configure CoPP to filter ip packets by source or destination address.

CSCsb52717: mcast-vpn ealyon Watchdog timeout and crash caused by invalid MDT data group join packet

Symptoms: A Cisco router configured for multicast VPN may reload after receiving a malformed MDT data group join packet.

Conditions: Affects all Cisco IOS versions that support mVPN MDT.

Workaround: Filter out MDT Data Join messages from the router sending the malformed packet using a Receive Access Control List (rACL) feature. Note by doing this, the offending router will not be able to participate within the mVPN data trees.

The following example shows how to block malformed MDT Data Join messages that are sent from the device's IP addresses using a receive ACL:

!
ip receive access-list 111
!
access-list 111 deny udp host <ip address of router sending malformed join
request> host 224.0.0.13 eq 3232
access-list 111 permit ip any any
!

Note Ensure that the rACL does not filter critical traffic such as routing protocols or interactive access to the routers. Filtering necessary traffic could result in an inability to remotely access the router, thus requiring a console connection. For this reason, lab configurations should mimic the actual deployment as closely as possible. Cisco recommends that you test this feature in the lab prior to deployment. For more information on rACLs, refer to "Protecting Your Core: Infrastructure Protection Access Control Lists" at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/racl.html.


CSCsd28634: tcl-bleeding ealyon AAA command authorization can be bypassed via TCL scripts from ESS/ESM

Symptoms: Add functionality to disable ESM filter to execute Cisco IOS configuration commands. To prevent configuration commands being executed via ESM TCL fitlers, enter the global configuration command: no loggin esm config

Conditions: Prevents execution of the tcl script command ios_config from ESM filters.

Further Problem Description: As Tcl script modules contain executable commands, you should manage the security of these files in the same way you manage configuration files."

Workaround: Syslog filter modules can be written and stored as plain-text files or as precompiled files. Tcl script pre-compiling can be done with tools such as TclPro. Precompiled scripts allow a measure of security and managed consistency because they cannot be edited.

CSCsd92600: pki michaelr RSA keypair is renamed after reload causing Certificate usage to fail

Symptoms: After a reload, the router is unable to use its certificate to establish a VPN connection. If the peer is also a Cisco IOS router, debug crypto isakmp will show the following error during the negotiation:

ISAKMP:(...): signature invalid!

Conditions: Certificate based authentication is used in ISAKMP

Workaround: Re-enroll the router after the reload, to get a new certificate.

Further Problem Description: After the reload, show crypto key mypubkey rsa shows that the RSA keypair used is an old one (the one that was in use before the most recent enrollment) so it does not match the keypair that was used to obtain the current certificate.

The RSA keypair that should be used (the one that was used to obtain the current certificate) has been renamed with a # at the end. For example, before the reload, the rsa keypair is named router.domain.priv. After the reload, this key is now named router.domain.priv#, and there is another (older) keypair named router.domain.priv that does not match the certificate.
