Cisco has released a security advisory to address multiple vulnerabilities in Wireless LAN Controllers. The advisory addresses the following:

  • Malformed HTTP or HTTPS authentication response denial-of-service vulnerability.
  • SSH connections denial-of-service vulnerability.
  • Crafted HTTP or HTTPS request denial-of-service vulnerability.
