CVE-2005-3858

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

Memory leak in the ip6_input_finish function in ip6_input.c in Linux kernel 2.6.12 and earlier might allow attackers to cause a denial of service via malformed IPv6 packets with unspecified parameter problems, which prevents the SKB from being freed.
