Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-09-14 13:19:22 EDT
A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the ospf6d daemon of the Quagga routing suite processed certain Link State Update packets with malformed Inter Area Prefix Link-State-Advertisement (LSA). A configured OSPF peer, could use this flaw to the master OSPF daemon (ospf6d) to crash, or, potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the ospf6d via specially-crafted OSPF Link State Update packet.
