Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-03-25 11:58:42 UTC
CVE-2014-2309 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-2309):

The ip6_route_add function in net/ipv6/route.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not properly count 
the addition of routes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) 
via a flood of ICMPv6 Router Advertisement packets.
