Description Mark J. Cox 2005-10-21 08:12:20 EDT
CVE-2005-3272 states:
        Linux kernel before 2.6.12 allows remote attackers to poison
        the bridge forwarding table using frames that have already
        been dropped by filtering, which can cause the bridge to
        forward spoofed packets.


This looks like it may affect RHEL4.  I've assigned this impact=moderate but it
could be low, please advise after a technical review of the flaw.
Comment 1 Thomas Graf 2006-05-11 10:44:16 EDT
It does affect RHEL4, the fix is easy enough, I think we should put this into U4.
Comment 7 Jason Baron 2006-05-22 15:19:41 EDT
committed in stream U4 build 36.1. A test kernel with this patch is available
from http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/rhel4/
