Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2008-10-19 03:38:13 UTC
CVE-2008-4576 (
  sctp in Linux kernel before allows remote attackers to
  cause a denial of service (OOPS) via an INIT-ACK that states the peer
  does not support AUTH, which causes the sctp_process_init function to
  clean up active transports and triggers the OOPS when the T1-Init
  timer expires.

Removing hardened; it's already incorporated in hardened-sources-2.6.25-r8, which is keyworded stable for all arches that the herd is able to test for (x86/amd64/ppc).
