Cisco Unified Communications Manager contains a vulnerability in its Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) implementation that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a critical service to fail, which could interrupt voice services. Affected devices must be configured to process SIP messages for this vulnerability to be exploitable.
Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. A workaround exists for customers who do not require SIP in their environment.
