Cisco Video Surveillance 8000 Series IP Cameras Cisco Discovery Protocol Remote Code Execution and Denial of Service Vulnerabilities

Multiple vulnerabilities in the Cisco Discovery Protocol implementation for Cisco Video Surveillance 8000 Series IP Cameras could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute code remotely or cause a reload of an affected IP camera.

These vulnerabilities are due to missing checks when the IP cameras process a Cisco Discovery Protocol packet. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a malicious Cisco Discovery Protocol packet to the targeted IP camera. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute code on the affected IP camera or cause it to reload unexpectedly, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

Note: Cisco Discovery Protocol is a Layer 2 protocol. To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker must be in the same broadcast domain as the affected device (Layer 2 adjacent).

Cisco has released software updates that address these vulnerabilities. There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

Cisco ASR 920 Series Aggregation Services Router Model 12SZ-IM SNMP Denial of Service Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) implementation in Cisco ASR 920 Series Aggregation Services Router model ASR920-12SZ-IM could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause the device to reload.

The vulnerability is due to incorrect handling of data that is returned for Cisco Discovery Protocol queries to SNMP. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a request for Cisco Discovery Protocol information by using SNMP. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause the affected device to reload, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are workarounds that address this vulnerability.

Cisco IOS, IOS XE, IOS XR, and NX-OS Software One Platform Kit Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Topology Discovery Service of Cisco One Platform Kit (onePK) in Cisco IOS Software, Cisco IOS XE Software, Cisco IOS XR Software, and Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient length restrictions when the onePK Topology Discovery Service parses Cisco Discovery Protocol messages. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a malicious Cisco Discovery Protocol message to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause a stack overflow, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges, or to cause a process crash, which could result in a reload of the device and cause a DoS condition.

Cisco FXOS and NX-OS Software Cisco Discovery Protocol Arbitrary Code Execution and Denial of Service Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Cisco Discovery Protocol feature of Cisco FXOS Software and Cisco NX-OS Software could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to execute arbitrary code as root or cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected device.

The vulnerability exists because of insufficiently validated Cisco Discovery Protocol packet headers. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted Cisco Discovery Protocol packet to a Layer 2-adjacent affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause a buffer overflow that could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code as root or cause a DoS condition on the affected device.

Note: Cisco Discovery Protocol is a Layer 2 protocol. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must be in the same broadcast domain as the affected device (Layer 2 adjacent).

Securing the Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software Layer 2 Traceroute Server

The Layer 2 (L2) traceroute utility identifies the L2 path that a packet takes from a source device to a destination device. Cisco IOS Software and Cisco IOS XE Software for Cisco Catalyst switches have inherited the L2 traceroute feature from Cisco CatOS Software. As such, this feature has been supported since Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software were first released. Cisco has confirmed that the L2 traceroute feature is not supported in Cisco IOS XR Software or Cisco NX-OS Software.

The L2 traceroute feature is enabled by default in Cisco IOS and IOS XE Software for Cisco Catalyst switches. Enabling the feature starts the L2 traceroute server, which is reachable through IPv4, listening on UDP port 2228. The following example shows the output of the show ip sockets command on a device that has the L2 traceroute feature enabled:

Switch#show ip sockets
Proto        Remote      Port      Local       Port  In Out  Stat TTY OutputIF
 17     0.0.0.0             0 10.10.10.1       2228   0   0   211   0 

By design, the L2 traceroute server does not require authentication, and it allows certain information about an affected device to be read, including the following:

  • Hostname
  • Hardware model
  • Configured interfaces
  • Configured IP addresses
  • VLAN database
  • MAC address table
  • Layer 2 filtering table
  • Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) neighbor information

Reading this information from multiple switches in the network could allow an attacker to build a complete L2 topology map of that network.

Customers are advised to secure the L2 traceroute server as described in the Recommendations section of this advisory.

Cisco IOS XE Software Catalyst 4500 Cisco Discovery Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Easy Virtual Switching System (VSS) of Cisco IOS XE Software on Catalyst 4500 Series Switches could allow an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to cause the switches to reload.

The vulnerability is due to incomplete error handling when processing Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) packets used with the Easy Virtual Switching System. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a specially crafted CDP packet. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause the device to reload, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are workarounds that address this vulnerability.
