Summary

  * A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Video
    Surveillance Media Server could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker
    to cause a denial of service (DoS) of the web-based management interface of
    an affected system.

    The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input
    by the web-based management interface of the affected service. An attacker
    could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to
    click a malicious link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to
    cause the web-based management interface to become unreachable, resulting
    in a DoS condition.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
