Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2007:0347 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel security and bug fix update 2007-05-16 18:56:58 UTC

Description Marcel Holtmann 2007-05-04 02:03:51 UTC
The nf_conntrack of the netfilter code does not set nfctinfo during reassembly
of fragmented packets, which leaves the default value as IP_CT_ESTABLISHED and
might allow remote attackers to bypass certain rulesets using IPv6 fragments.
