It is possible to crash the remote host by sending it a malformed SCTP
There is a flaw in the Linux kernel on the remote host that causes a
kernel panic when it receives an SCTP packet with a chunk data packet
of length 0. An attacker can leverage this flaw to crash the remote
host. Additionally, other types of crafted packets can cause a remote
denial of service in various SCTP related functions.
Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that the
kernel support SCTP protocol connection tracking.
