Cisco IOS XE Software DHCP Snooping with Endpoint Analytics Denial of Service Vulnerability

Categories: Latest Cyber News
Help raise awareness by sharing this page:

A vulnerability in the DHCP snooping feature of Cisco IOS XE Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause an affected device to reload unexpectedly, resulting in a denial of service (DoS) condition.

This vulnerability is due to a crafted IPv4 DHCP request packet being mishandled when endpoint analytics are enabled. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted DHCP request through an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause the device to reload, resulting in a DoS condition.

Note: The attack vector is listed as network because a DHCP relay anywhere on the network could allow exploits from networks other than the adjacent one.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
