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 br_mdb_ip_get function in net/bridge/br_multicast.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35-rc5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an IGMP packet, related to lack of a multicast table.
