  2. the SA says:
    Summary
    Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOSĀ®) Software is vulnerable to a
    Denial of Service (DoS) and potentially an arbitrary code execution attack
    from a specifically crafted IPv6 packet. The packet must be sent from a
    local network segment. Only devices that have been explicitly configured to
    process IPv6 traffic are affected. Upon successful exploitation, the device
    may reload or be open to further exploitation.

    Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability for all
    affected customers.

    This advisory will be posted at
    http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050729-ipv6.shtml.
