    "Cisco has warned of a vulnerability in its IOS Firewall Authentication
    Proxy which might be used by hackers to launch denial of service attacks
    against vulnerable systems. The vulnerability stems from a software bug in
    processing user authentication credentials which might be exploited to
    cause a buffer overflow."
