Description Vincent Danen 2010-07-12 17:22:14 EDT
Ovidiu Mara discovered a flaw in ping (part of iputils).  If a user were to ping a malicious system able to send back a crafted echo reply packet, ping would hang and consume 100% CPU, which could have adverse effect on the usability of the local system.
