CVE-2008-3792 (
  net/sctp/socket.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp)
  implementation in the Linux kernel does not verify that the
  SCTP-AUTH extension is enabled before proceeding with SCTP-AUTH API
  functions, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service
  (panic) via vectors that result in calls to (1)
  sctp_setsockopt_auth_chunk, (2) sctp_setsockopt_hmac_ident, (3)
  sctp_setsockopt_auth_key, (4) sctp_setsockopt_active_key, (5)
  sctp_setsockopt_del_key, (6) sctp_getsockopt_maxburst, (7)
  sctp_getsockopt_active_key, (8) sctp_getsockopt_peer_auth_chunks, or
  (9) sctp_getsockopt_local_auth_chunks.
