Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-05-04 01:59:53 UTC
The nfnetlink_log in the netfilter code allows attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via unspecified vectors involving the (1) nfulnl_recv_config
function, (2) using "multiple packets per netlink message", and (3) bridged
packets, which trigger a NULL pointer dereference.
