Summary

  o A vulnerability in the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) functionality of Cisco
    AsyncOS Software for Cisco Email Security Appliances (ESA) could allow an
    unauthenticated, remote attacker to bypass configured user filters on the
    device.

    The vulnerability is due to incomplete input and validation checking
    mechanisms for certain SPF messages that are sent to an affected device. An
    attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a customized SPF
    packet to an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker
    to bypass the header filters that are configured for the affected device,
    which could allow malicious content to pass through the device.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
