Cisco IOS System Timers Heap Overflow Code Execution Vulnerability

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:4914

Cisco IOS 12.0 to 12.4 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a heap-based buffer overflow in system timers. NOTE: this issue does not correspond to a specific vulnerability rather a general weakness that only increases the feasibility of exploitation of any vulnerabilities that might exist. Such design-level weaknesses normally are not included in CVE so perhaps this issue should be REJECTed.
