CVE-2017-3865
CWE-399

Summary

    A vulnerability in the IPsec component of Cisco StarOS for Cisco ASR 5000
    Series Routers could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to terminate
    all active IPsec VPN tunnels and prevent new tunnels from establishing,
    resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

    The vulnerability is due to improper processing of Internet Key Exchange
    (IKE) messages. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending
    crafted IKE messages toward an affected router. An exploit could allow the
    attacker to cause the ipsecmgr service to reload. A reload of the ipsecmgr
    service could result in all IPsec VPN tunnels being terminated and prevent
    new tunnels from being established until the service has restarted,
    resulting in a DoS condition.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
