Cisco Security Advisory: Multiple Vulnerabilities in Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers


Cisco WLCs and Cisco WiSMs are responsible for system-wide wireless
LAN functions, such as security policies, intrusion prevention, RF
management, quality of service (QoS), and mobility.

These devices communicate with controller-based access points over any Layer 2 (Ethernet) or Layer 3 (IP) infrastructure using the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and the Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) protocol.

The Cisco Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) product family is affected by
the following vulnerabilities:

* Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers HTTP Denial of Service Vulnerability
* Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers IPv6 Denial of Service Vulnerability
* Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers WebAuth Denial of Service Vulnerability
* Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers Unauthorized Access Vulnerability

Cisco has released free software updates that address these vulnerabilities. Workarounds are available that mitigate some of these vulnerabilities.
