Cisco IOS SIP packet handling denial of service
|cisco-sip-packet-dos (31990)||Medium Risk|
Cisco devices running certain versions of voice supported Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software (IOS) are vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by improper handling of Session Initiated Protocol (SIP) packets over port 5060. If SIP is disabled, a remote attacker could send specially-crafted SIP packets to cause the device to reload, resulting in a denial of service.
