Cisco IOS contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. The issue is due to the TCP listener not properly handling malformed TCP traffic sent to IPv4 addresses. By sending such traffic, an attacker can cause the device to leak memory and eventually exhaust resources causing the device to stop routing traffic.
