DescriptionUnder certain conditions, theTraffic Management Microkernel (TMM) may restart and produce a core file while processing BIG-IP APM data.
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (DoS) on the BIG-IP system. The BIG-IP system will temporarily fail to process traffic as it recovers from a TMM restart, and devices configured in a device group may fail over.
