|Bugzilla:||714867: CVE-2011-2482 kernel: sctp dos|
The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:
A certain Red Hat patch to the sctp_sock_migrate function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.21, as used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted SCTP packet.
This issue did not affect the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 as it did not backport the upstream commit 3ab224be6d6. It did not affect the Linux kernels as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise MRG as they have backported the upstream commit ea2bc483ff5 that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 did not. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1212.html.
