Cisco IOS and IOS XR IP option code execution

cisco-ip-option-code-execution (31725) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

Cisco devices running certain versions of Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software (IOS) could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service, caused by improper handling of certain packets containing a specially-crafted IP option. By sending an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), Protocol Independent Multicast version 2 (PIMv2), Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM), or URL Rendezvous Directory (URD) packet containing a specially-crafted IP option to a physical or virtual IPv4 address on an affected device, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the affected device or cause the device to reload, resulting in a denial of service.
