Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the extensible markup language parsing and handling during the virtual private network establishment phase of Cisco AnyConnect
Secure Mobility Client could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient input validation of messages received from the headend. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by
enducing a victim to connect to an attacker controlled headend. An exploit could allow the attacker to crash the AnyConnect application. A
successful attack requires the attacker to trick the victim, or their computer into connecting to an attacker controlled headend.
