Description

The remote Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) Software contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a memory leak which can be exploited to create a denial of service condition.

The vulnerability is due to improper handling of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability via specially crafted SIP packets.
