Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171383
CVE-2005-3272 bridge poisoning
Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:28:32 EDT
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.
It does affect RHEL4, the fix is easy enough, I think we should put this into U4.
The upstream fix can be found here:
committed in stream U4 build 36.1. A test kernel with this patch is available
