CVE-2014-2129 Scanner Detail
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) software is commonly used by businesses as a firewall and VPN (Virtual Private Network) appliance. Its primary purpose is to provide secure remote access to company resources through the internet, while also protecting the network from outside threats. The software includes various security features such as intrusion prevention, deep packet inspection, and content filtering, making it an essential tool for network security.
The CVE-2014-2129 vulnerability detected in this product, also known by its Bug ID CSCuh44052, affects the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) inspection engine in ASA software versions 8.2 to 9.1.

When exploited, this vulnerability can lead to a complete loss of network connectivity and an increase in downtime for the affected organization. It can also result in significant financial losses due to the disruption of business operations. Furthermore, the disclosure of sensitive data such as usernames and passwords can occur if the firewall is not functioning correctly.
