Description Adam Mariš 2016-11-23 15:26:49 UTC
A flaw was found in the Linux kernels implementation of sctp protocol in which a remote attacker can trigger an out of bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB.  This may panic the machine with a page-fault and the out-of-bounds data does not seem to be returned to the remote attacker.

For this attack to be sucessful, the kernel needs to have both the SCTP protocol module loaded and a process listening as an SCTP server.
