Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the Representational State Transfer (REST) interface of the Cisco Unified 
Communications Manager IM and Presence Service could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker 
to cause a partial denial of service (DoS) condition because the Cisco Session Initiation 
Protocol (SIP) Proxy service can unexpectedly restart.

The vulnerability is due to lack of proper input validation of the HTTP request when that request 
is sent to the REST interface. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted 
HTTP request to the REST interface of the affected application. An exploit could allow the attacker 
to cause a partial DoS condition due to the Cisco SIP Proxy service unexpectedly restarting.

The application is running with default configuration with an affected version of software.
