Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2008-10-22 08:20:06 UTC
CVE-2008-4618 (
  The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the
  Linux kernel before 2.6.27 does not properly handle a protocol
  violation in which a parameter has an invalid length, which allows
  attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via unspecified
  vectors, related to sctp_sf_violation_paramlen,
  sctp_sf_abort_violation, sctp_make_abort_violation, and incorrect
  data types in function calls.
