Description Petr Matousek 2013-07-15 16:16:51 UTC
If two router advertisment speaker announce seperate default gateways with infinite timeout the kernel currently packs these routes together into an ecmp route set. If one of the RA speaker now changes the advertised expiration to a lower value and a third route with infinite timeout pops up we end up with a BUG_ON.

Remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system.
