Cisco Closed Remote Code Execution & DoS Vulnerability in Security Appliances

Cisco Closed Remote Code Execution & DoS Vulnerability in Security Appliances 
Giant of networking equipment manufacturer CISCO warning of a critical vulnerability in its ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA). An unauthenticated attacker can remotely execute arbitrary code and compromise a victim's system. The problem is located in a Cisco port forwarding ActiveX control – distributed to client systems by ASA as part of the Clientless VPN feature – that can be used to cause a buffer overflow attack.  Versions 7.1 and 7.2, as well as 8.0 to 8.6 of the Cisco ASA software are affected. Cisco has contacted Microsoft and requested that it set a global kill bit for the vulnerable control in a future update, which will disable the exploitable control on affected systems. The company has released software updates that address the issue; for those who can't yet upgrade, workarounds are provided in the Cisco security advisory. In their security updates CISCO also closes the denial of service hole in  ASA 5500 Series appliances and the Catalyst 6500 Series ASA Services Module (ASASM).
