Herbert Xu reported that Zebra can accept spoofed messages sent on the
kernel netlink interface by other users on the local machine. This
could lead to a local denial of service attack. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CVE-2003-0858 to this issue.
Users of Zebra should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain
a patch preventing Zebra from crashing when it receives a telnet
option delimiter without any option data, and a patch that checks that
netlink messages actually came from the kernel.
