Description Bjoern Tropf (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-10-20 06:44:15 UTC
CVE-2009-3613 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2009-3613):

The swiotlb functionality in the r8169 driver in drivers/net/r8169.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (IOMMU space exhaustion and system crash) by using jumbo frames for a large amount of network traffic, as demonstrated by a flood ping.
