Cisco Meeting Server H.264 Protocol Denial of Service Vulnerability

Medium

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20170802-ms

First Published: 2017 August 2 16:00  GMT

Version 1.0: Final

Workarounds: No workarounds available

Cisco Bug IDs: CSCve10131

CVSS Score: Base 5.8, Temporal 5.8
CVE-2017-6763
CWE-20

Summary

A vulnerability in the implementation of the H.264 protocol in Cisco
Meeting Server (CMS) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
cause a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected system.

The vulnerability exists because the affected application does not properly
validate Fragmentation Unit (FU-A) protocol packets. An attacker could
exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted H.264 FU-A packet through
the affected application. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to
cause a DoS condition on the affected system due to an unexpected restart
of the CMS media process on the system. Although the CMS platform continues
to operate and only the single, affected CMS media process is restarted,
a brief interruption of media traffic for certain users could occur.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
