A vulnerability in the web server of Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause the web server process to crash, causing a denial of service (DoS) condition on an affected system. The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input on the web interface. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by submitting a crafted HTTP request to certain endpoints of the affected software. A successful exploit could allow an attacker to cause the web server to crash. Physical access to the device may be required for a restart.

A vulnerability exploitable with network access means the vulnerable software is bound to the network stack and the attacker does not require local network access or local access. Such a vulnerability is often termed "remotely exploitable". An example of a network attack is an RPC buffer overflow.
Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples:
- The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous and untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server).
- The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous.
- The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering.
- The race condition is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).
Authentication is not required to exploit the vulnerability.
