Description Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2011-05-08 21:37:33 EDT
length of zero (after subtracting two for the type and len fields) for the DCCPO_{CHANGE,CONFIRM}_{L,R} options will cause an underflow due to the subtraction.  The subsequent code may read past the end of the options value buffer when parsing.



Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting this issue.
Comment 3 Eugene Teo (Security Response) 2011-05-08 22:05:29 EDT

This issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 does not provide support for the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP), and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, which does support DCCP, did not backport the upstream commit that introduced this issue, e77b8363b. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0836.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1253.html.
