Affected Products

Vulnerable Products

The following products are affected by this vulnerability:
  • Cisco IOS Software
  • Cisco IOS XE Software
To determine whether a Cisco IOS or Cisco IOS XE Software release is running on a Cisco product, administrators can log in to the device and issue the show version command to display the system banner. The system banner confirms that the device is running Cisco IOS Software by displaying text similar to "Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software" or "Cisco IOS Software." The image name displays in parentheses, followed by "Version" and the Cisco IOS Software release name. Other Cisco devices do not have the show version command or may provide different output.

The following example identifies a Cisco product that is running Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4(20)T with an installed image name of C1841-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M:
Router#show version
Cisco IOS Software, 1841 Software (C1841-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(20)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3) Technical Support: http://www.cisco.com/techsupport Copyright (c) 1986-2008 by Cisco Systems, Inc. Compiled Thu 10-Jul-08 20:25 by prod_rel_team
Additional information about Cisco IOS Software release naming conventions is available in the White Paper: Cisco IOS and NX-OS Software Reference Guide

Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

Cisco IOS XR Software is not affected by this vulnerability. No other Cisco products are currently known to be affected by this vulnerability.

Details

MSDP is the protocol used to connect multiple Protocol Independent Multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM) domains. MSDP allows multicast sources for a group to be known to all rendezvous points (RPs) in different domains.  An RP runs MSDP over TCP to discover multicast sources.

An RP in a PIM-SM domain has an MSDP peering relationship with MSDP-enabled routers in another domain. The peering relationship occurs over a TCP connection, where primarily a list of sources sending to multicast groups is exchanged. The TCP connections between RPs are achieved by the underlying routing system. The receiving RP uses the source lists to establish a source path.

The purpose of this topology is to have domains discover multicast sources in other domains. If the multicast sources are of interest to a domain that has receivers, multicast data is delivered over the normal, source-tree building mechanism in PIM-SM.

An MSDP packet containing encapsulated Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) data, received from an external MSDP-configured peer router, can cause an affected device to reload. This vulnerability can only be exploited if the router is explicitly joined to the multicast group. The MSDP packet destination address is a unicast address and can be addressed to any IP address on the affected device, including loopback addresses.

Transit traffic will not trigger this vulnerability.

A vulnerable interface configuration contains an explicitly joined multicast group. Some example configurations that permit exploitation of this vulnerability are:


!--- Interface configured for SAP Listener Support (a common multicast group)

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
ip pim sparse-mode
ip sap listen

!--- Interface configured to join a multicast group

interface GigabitEthernet0/0 ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-mode ip igmp join-group 224.2.127.254

You can also use the show igmp interface command to determine if an interface is joined to a multicast group.

RouterA#show ip igmp interface 
GigabitEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up
  Internet address is 192.168.0.1/24
  IGMP is enabled on interface
  Current IGMP host version is 2
  Current IGMP router version is 2
  IGMP query interval is 60 seconds
  IGMP querier timeout is 120 seconds
  IGMP max query response time is 10 seconds
  Last member query count is 2
  Last member query response interval is 1000 ms
  Inbound IGMP access group is not set
  IGMP activity: 2 joins, 0 leaves
  Multicast routing is disabled on interface
  Multicast TTL threshold is 0
  Multicast groups joined by this system (number of users):
      224.2.127.254(2)  239.255.255.255(1)

This vulnerability is documented in Cisco bug ID CSCtr28857 (registered customers only). This vulnerability has been assigned Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) ID CVE-2012-0382.

Cisco IOS XR Software

Cisco IOS XR Software is not affected by any of the vulnerabilities disclosed in the March 2012 Cisco IOS Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication.


Workarounds

Customers with an MSDP-configured router who do not require membership to multicast groups can remove the ip sap listen or ip igmp join-group <multicast-group address> commands on the router interface as a workaround.

For example:

  RouterA#conf t
    RouterA(config)# interface GigabitEthernet0/0
    RouterA(config-if)# no ip sap listen
    RouterA(config-if)# no ip igmp join-group 224.2.127.254
  interface GigabitEthernet0/0
  ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
  ip pim sparse-mode

To determine if a router is configured for MSDP peers, run the command show ip msdp peer at the router command prompt:

RouterA# show ip msdp peer
MSDP Peer 192.168.0.2 (?), AS 100
  Connection status:
    State: Up, Resets: 0, Connection source: none configured
    Uptime(Downtime): 01:23:42, Messages sent/received: 25/24
    Output messages discarded: 0
    Connection and counters cleared 01:15:14 ago
  SA Filtering:
    Input (S,G) filter: none, route-map: none
    Input RP filter: none, route-map: none
    Output (S,G) filter: none, route-map: none
    Output RP filter: none, route-map: none
  SA-Requests:
    Input filter: none
  Peer ttl threshold: 0
  SAs learned from this peer: 0
    Input queue size: 0, Output queue size: 0
  Message counters:
    RPF Failure count: 0
    SA Messages in/out: 13/8
    SA Requests in: 0
SA Responses out: 0   
Data Packets in/out: 7/8
To remove an untrusted MSDP peer from your configuration, use the no ip msdp peer <address> or ip msdp default-peer <ip-address | name> command on the router configuration interface.

RouterA(config)# no ip msdp peer 192.168.0.2
interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
 ip pim sparse-mode

Obtaining Fixed Software

Cisco has released free software updates that address the vulnerability|vulnerabilities described in this advisory. Prior to deploying software, customers are advised to consult their maintenance providers or check the software for feature set compatibility and known issues that are specific to their environments.

Customers may only install and expect support for feature sets they have purchased. By installing, downloading, accessing, or otherwise using such software upgrades, customers agree to follow the terms of the Cisco software license at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/general/warranty/English/EU1KEN_.html, or as set forth at http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/sw-usingswc.shtml.

Do not contact psirt@cisco.com or security-alert@cisco.com for software upgrades.

Customers with Service Contracts

Customers with contracts should obtain upgraded software through their regular update channels. For most customers, upgrades should be obtained through the Software Center on Cisco.com at http://www.cisco.com.

Customers Using Third-Party Support Organizations

Customers with Cisco products that are provided or maintained through prior or existing agreements with third-party support organizations, such as Cisco Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers, should contact that organization for assistance with the appropriate course of action.

The effectiveness of any workaround or fix depends on specific customer situations, such as product mix, network topology, traffic behavior, and organizational mission. Because of the variety of affected products and releases, customers should consult their service providers or support organizations to ensure that any applied workaround or fix is the most appropriate in the intended network before it is deployed.

Customers Without Service Contracts

Customers who purchase directly from Cisco but do not hold a Cisco service contract and customers who make purchases through third-party vendors but are unsuccessful in obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should obtain upgrades by contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC):

  • +1 800 553 2447 (toll free from within North America)
  • +1 408 526 7209 (toll call from anywhere in the world)
  • e-mail: tac@cisco.com

Customers should have the product serial number available and be prepared to provide the URL of this advisory as evidence of entitlement to a free upgrade. Customers without service contracts should request free upgrades through the TAC.

Refer to Cisco Worldwide Contacts at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html for additional TAC contact information, including localized telephone numbers, instructions, and e-mail addresses for support in various languages.
