Description (partial)

A vulnerability in the Policy Based Routing (PBR) feature of Cisco IOS XR Software for the Cisco Aggregation 
Services Router (ASR) 9000 Series could allow an authenticated, adjacent attacker to restart an internal 
process and cause a denial of service condition.

The vulnerability is due to improper size validation when handling TCP packets. 
An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted TCP packets to an affected system. 
An exploit could allow the attacker to force an internal process to restart, forbidding new Broadband 
Network Gateway (BNG) subscribers from accessing the network.
