250429: CVE-2007-2172 fib_semantics.c out of bounds access vulnerability

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

A typo in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.21-rc6 and 2.4 before 2.4.35 causes RTA_MAX to be used as an array size instead of RTN_MAX, which leads to an "out of bound access" by the (1) dn_fib_props (dn_fib.c, DECNet) and (2) fib_props (fib_semantics.c, IPv4) functions.
