HIGH
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The redirect_target function in net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_REDIRECT.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by sending packets to an interface that has a 0.0.0.0 IP address, a related issue to CVE-2015-8787.
