Affected Products
================
Vulnerable Products
+------------------

Cisco IOS Software devices are vulnerable if they support NTPv4 and
are configured for NTP operations. NTP is not enabled in Cisco IOS
Software by default.

To see if a device supports NTPv4, log into the device and via
configuration mode of the command line interface (CLI), enter the
command "ntp peer 127.0.0.1 version ?". If the output has the number "4"
as an option, then the device supports NTPv4. The following example
identifies a Cisco device that is running a Cisco IOS Software
release that does support NTPv4:

    Router#configure terminal
    Router(config)#ntp peer 127.0.0.1 version ?
      <2-4>  NTP version number

The following example identifies a Cisco device that is running a
Cisco IOS Software release that does not support NTPv4:

    Router(config)#ntp peer 127.0.0.1 version ?
      <1-3>  NTP version number

To see if a device is configured with NTP, log into the device and
issue the CLI command "show running-config | include ntp". If the
output returns either of the following commands listed then the
device is vulnerable:

    ntp master 
    ntp peer 
    ntp server 
    ntp broadcast client
    ntp multicast client

The following example identifies a Cisco device that is configured
with NTP:

    router#show running-config | include ntp
    ntp peer 192.168.0.12

The following example identifies a Cisco device that is not
configured with NTP:

    router#show running-config | include ntp
    router#

To determine the Cisco IOS Software release that is running on a
Cisco product, administrators can log in to the device and issue the 
"show version" command to display the system banner. The system banner
confirms that the device is running Cisco IOS Software by displaying
text similar to "Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software" or
"Cisco IOS Software." The image name displays in parentheses,
followed by "Version" and the Cisco IOS Software release name. Other
Cisco devices do not have the "show version" command or may provide
different output.

The following example identifies a Cisco product that is running
Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(26) with an installed image name of
C2500-IS-L:

    Router#show version
     Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software
     IOS (tm) 2500 Software (C2500-IS-L), Version 12.3(26), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

     Compiled Mon 17-Mar-08 14:39 by dchih
    
     

The following example shows a product that is running Cisco IOS
Software release 12.4(20)T with an image name of
C1841-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M:

    Router#show version
    Cisco IOS Software, 1841 Software (C1841-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(20)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable
+--------------------------------

The following products and features are not affected by this
vulnerability:

  * Cisco IOS Software devices without support for NTPv4
  * Cisco IOS Software devices configured with only Simple NTP (SNTP)
    feature
  * Cisco IOS XE Software
  * Cisco IOS XR Software

No other Cisco products are currently known to be affected by this
vulnerability.

Details
======
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol designed to
time-synchronize a network of machines. NTP runs over UDP, which in
turn runs over IP. NTPv3 is documented in RFC1305 leavingcisco.com .
NTPv4 is a significant revision of the NTP standard, and is the
current development version, but has not been formalized into an RFC
at the time of publication of this advisory. NTPv4 is currently
documented in draft-ietf-ntp-ntpv4-proto-11 leavingcisco.com

When a Cisco IOS Software device supporting NTPv4 receives a specific
NTP packet it will crash while creating the NTP reply packet. The NTP
packet can be sent from any remote device, and does not require
authentication. Cisco IOS devices supporting NTPv4 and configured
with NTP peer authentication are still vulnerable. The device does
not have to be explicitly configured for NTPv4 peers. For example a
device configured with all NTP peers being explicitly labeled as
version 2 would still be vulnerable, as shown in the following
example:

    Router#show running-config | include ntp
    ntp peer 192.168.0.254 version 2
    ntp peer 192.168.0.1 version 2
    Router#

For further information on the Cisco implementation of NTP, consult
the configuration guide "Cisco IOS and NX-OS Software - Performing
Basic System Management" at the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/netmgmt/configuration/guide/nm_basic_sys_manage.html#wp1001170 

This vulnerability is documented in the following Cisco Bug IDs: 
CSCsu24505 and CSCsv75948 and has been assigned the Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures (CVE) identifier CVE-2009-2869. Both Cisco bug IDs are
required for a full fix to this vulnerability.

Software Versions and Fixes
==========================
When considering software upgrades, also consult:

http://www.cisco.com/go/psirt 

and any subsequent advisories to determine exposure and a complete
upgrade solution.

In all cases, customers should exercise caution to be certain the
devices to be upgraded contain sufficient memory and that current
hardware and software configurations will continue to be supported
properly by the new release. If the information is not clear, contact
the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or your contracted
maintenance provider for assistance.

Each row of the Cisco IOS software table (below) names a Cisco IOS
release train. If a given release train is vulnerable, then the
earliest possible releases that contain the fix (along with the
anticipated date of availability for each, if applicable) are listed
in the "First Fixed Release" column of the table. The "Recommended
Release" column indicates the releases which have fixes for all the
published vulnerabilities at the time of this Advisory. A device
running a release in the given train that is earlier than the release
in a specific column (less than the First Fixed Release) is known to
be vulnerable. Cisco recommends upgrading to a release equal to or
later than the release in the "Recommended Releases" column of the
table.

Workarounds
==========
There are no workarounds other than disabling NTP on the device. The
following mitigations have been identified for this vulnerability;
only packets destined for any configured IP address on the device can
exploit this vulnerability. Transit traffic will not exploit this
vulnerability.

Note: NTP peer authentication is not a workaround and is still a
vulnerable configuration.

NTP Access Group
+---------------

Warning: Because the feature in this vulnerability utilizes
UDP as a transport, it is possible to spoof the sender's IP address,
which may defeat access control lists (ACLs) that permit
communication to these ports from trusted IP addresses. Unicast
Reverse Path Forwarding (Unicast RPF) should be considered to be used
in conjunction to offer a better mitigation solution.

Infrastructure Access Control Lists
+----------------------------------

warning Warning: Because the feature in this vulnerability utilizes
UDP as a transport, it is possible to spoof the sender's IP address,
which may defeat ACLs that permit communication to these ports from
trusted IP addresses. Unicast RPF should be considered to be used in
conjunction to offer a better mitigation solution.

Although it is often difficult to block traffic that transits a
network, it is possible to identify traffic that should never be
allowed to target infrastructure devices and block that traffic at
the border of networks. Infrastructure ACLs (iACLs) are a network
security best practice and should be considered as a long-term
addition to good network security as well as a workaround for this
specific vulnerability. The iACL example below should be included as
part of the deployed infrastructure access-list, which will help
protect all devices with IP addresses in the infrastructure IP
address range:

    
    !---
    !--- Feature: Network Time Protocol (NTP)
    !---
    
    
    access-list 150 permit udp TRUSTED_SOURCE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD 
        INFRASTRUCTURE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD eq 123
    
    
    !--- Note: If the router is acting as a NTP broadcast client
    !---   via the interface command "ntp broadcast client"
    !---   then broadcast and directed broadcasts must be 
    !---   filtered as well.  The following example covers
    !---   an infrastructure address space of 192.168.0.X
    
    
    access-list 150 permit udp TRUSTED_SOURCE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD 
        host 192.168.0.255 eq ntp
    access-list 150 permit udp TRUSTED_SOURCE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD 
        host 255.255.255.255 eq ntp
    
    
    !--- Note: If the router is acting as a NTP multicast client
    !---   via the interface command "ntp multicast client"
    !---   then multicast IP packets to the mutlicast group must
    !---   be filtered as well.  The following example covers
    !---   a NTP multicast group of 239.0.0.1 (Default is
    !---   224.0.1.1)
    
    
    access-list 150 permit udp TRUSTED_SOURCE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD 
        host 239.0.0.1 eq ntp
    
    
    !--- Deny NTP traffic from all other sources destined
    !--- to infrastructure addresses.
    
    
    access-list 150 deny udp any 
        INFRASTRUCTURE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD eq 123
    
    
    !--- Permit/deny all other Layer 3 and Layer 4 traffic in
    !--- accordance with existing security policies and
    !--- configurations.  Permit all other traffic to transit the
    !--- device.
    
    
    access-list 150 permit ip any any
    
    
    !--- Apply access-list to all interfaces (only one example
    !--- shown)
     
    
    interface fastEthernet 2/0
     ip access-group 150 in

Protection Access Control Lists" presents guidelines and recommended
deployment techniques for infrastructure protection access lists and

Control Plane Policing
+---------------------

Warning: Because the feature in this vulnerability utilizes UDP as a
transport, it is possible to spoof the sender's IP address, which may
defeat ACLs that permit communication to these ports from trusted IP
addresses. Unicast RPF should be considered to be used in conjunction
to offer a better mitigation solution.

Control Plane Policing (CoPP) can be used to block untrusted UDP
traffic to the device. Cisco IOS software releases 12.0S, 12.2SX,
12.2S, 12.3T, 12.4, and 12.4T support the CoPP feature. CoPP can be
configured on a device to help protect the management and control
planes and minimize the risk and effectiveness of direct
infrastructure attacks by explicitly permitting only authorized
traffic that is sent to infrastructure devices in accordance with
existing security policies and configurations. The CoPP example below
should be included as part of the deployed CoPP, which will help
protect all devices with IP addresses in the infrastructure IP
address range.

    
    !--- Feature: Network Time Protocol (NTP)
    
    
    access-list 150 deny udp TRUSTED_SOURCE_ADDRESSES WILDCARD
         any eq 123
    
    
    !--- Deny NTP traffic from all other sources destined
    !--- to the device control plane.
    
    
    access-list 150 permit udp any any eq 123
    
    
    !--- Permit (Police or Drop)/Deny (Allow) all other Layer3 and 
    !--- Layer4 traffic in accordance with existing security policies
    !--- and configurations for traffic that is authorized to be sent
    !--- to infrastructure devices
    !--- Create a Class-Map for traffic to be policed by
    !--- the CoPP feature
    
    
    class-map match-all drop-udp-class
     match access-group 150
    
    
    !--- Create a Policy-Map that will be applied to the
    !--- Control-Plane of the device.
    
    
    policy-map drop-udp-traffic
     class drop-udp-class
      drop
    
    
    !--- Apply the Policy-Map to the 
    !--- Control-Plane of the device
    
    
    control-plane
     service-policy input drop-udp-traffic

In the above CoPP example, the access control list entries (ACEs)
that match the potential exploit packets with the "permit" action
result in these packets being discarded by the policy-map "drop"
function, while packets that match the "deny" action (not shown) are
not affected by the policy-map drop function. Please note that the
policy-map syntax is different in the 12.2S and 12.0S Cisco IOS
Software trains:

    policy-map drop-udp-traffic
    class drop-udp-class
    police 32000 1500 1500 conform-action drop exceed-action drop

feature can be found in the documents, "Control Plane Policing
