Software flaw could leave Cisco gear vulnerable to freezes/shutdowns

A software vulnerability may cause some high-end Cisco switches

and routers with specific configurations to crash, but only

under very specific circumstances.

According to Cisco, Catalyst 6000 and 6500 switches and Cisco

7600 routers could freeze or reset if the device encounters a

Layer 3 packet that is inconsistent in size with the Layer 2

frame encapsulating it.

Could you please recommend a stable ver that also fixes this Vunerability.
