Cisco IOS potentially susceptible to two zero day vulnerabilities

SecurityFocus has two posts indicating that Cisco IOS 15.0 is vulnerable to attackers.

Both are DoS (Denial of Service) issues and at this time there is no solution being offered from Cisco to correct the problem.

Should your network be non-responsive, you could attempt to reboot your Cisco device to restore connectivity.

The original posts are as follows:

Cisco IOS UDP Denial of Service Vulnerability

Cisco IOS SNMP Message Processing Denial Of Service Vulnerability
