It is a vulnerability detected by ISS scanner.

"Cisco Pingball"

Some Cisco routers can be configured to issue ICMP echo requests through the SNMP agent. If repeated numerous times, the router's memory can be filled, causing performance degradation and an inability to respond to ICMP echo requests.

The recommended countermeasure is strong SNMP community names.
