Description Marcel Holtmann 2006-09-01 10:39:05 UTC
From Ang Way Chuang:

ULE (Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation RFC 4326) decapsulation code has a
bug that allows an attacker to send a malformed ULE packet with SNDU length of 0
and bring down the receiving machine. The kernel will produce a dump during
CRC32 checking on faulty ULE packet.

Comment 5 Neil Horman 2006-09-15 19:49:53 UTC
 don't have any hardware to test this, but it looks pretty obvious.  I'll smoke
test and patch

Comment 6 Jason Baron 2006-09-22 00:40:49 UTC
committed in stream U5 build 42.13. A test kernel with this patch is available

Comment 7 Jason Baron 2006-09-26 14:38:21 UTC
