A denial of service flaw was found in the way the bgpd daemon in Quagga handled the processing of large BGP update messages. A remote, previously trusted attacker could potentially use this flaw to cause bgpd to terminate existing BGP sessions, thereby leading to denial of service.
The aspath_put function in bgpd/bgp_aspath.c in Quagga before 1.2.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (session drop) via BGP UPDATE messages, because AS_PATH size calculation for long paths counts certain bytes twice and consequently constructs an invalid message.
Affected versions: 0.99.10 - 0.99.24.1, 1.0.*, 1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.2.0, 1.2.1
