http://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityNotice/CVE-2015-0659
CVE ID: CVE-2015-0659
Release Date: 2015 March 5 19:14  UTC (GMT)
Last Updated: 2015 March 5 19:14  UTC (GMT)


Summary

A vulnerability in the Autonomic Networking Infrastructure (ANI) feature of Cisco IOS Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause an affected device to form an adjacency with itself.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient data validation. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted Autonomic Networking (AN) message. A successful exploit could allow an attacker to add invalid device entries or to cause an adjacency to be formed with another device. These entries look to the system and an administrator like an adjacency with the local device.

What Is a Cisco Security Notice?

The Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) publishes Cisco Security Notices to inform customers of low- to mid-level severity security issues involving Cisco products.

Customers who wish to upgrade to a software version that includes fixes for these issues should contact their normal support channels. Free software updates will not be provided for issues that are disclosed through a Cisco Security Notice.

For additional information about Cisco PSIRT publications, see the Cisco Security Vulnerability Policy at http://www.cisco.com/web/about/security/psirt/security_vulnerability_policy.html

Customers Using Third-Party Support Organizations

Customers may have 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. For these products, 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.
