Description

According to its self-reported IOS version, the remote device may be affected by a denial of service vulnerability related to incorrect handling of malformed Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) packets. An adjacent, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this issue by sending malformed packets, causing a device reload.

Note that a successful attack requires that Channel Interface Processor (CIP) is enabled.
