CVE-2011-4348

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

Race condition in the sctp_rcv function in net/sctp/input.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.29 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system hang) via SCTP packets. NOTE: in some environments, this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-2482.
