Cisco said in a security advisory that successful exploitation would allow an attacker to execute code and control the targeted system with administrator rights.

Cisco released a free patch and is advising customers to obtain the Cisco Security Agent fix through their service provider or hardware retailer. There are no other mitigations for the vulnerability right now.

Proof-of-concept code for the flaw is available, but Cisco has not received any exploitation reports of the vulnerability. No other products or components suffer the same issue.
