FreeBSD : quagga -- Denial of Service (2748fdde-3a3c-11de-bbc5-00e0815b8da8)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38697
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionDebian Security Team reports :
It was discovered that Quagga, an IP routing daemon, could no longer process the Internet routing table due to broken handling of multiple 4-byte AS numbers in an AS path. If such a prefix is received, the BGP daemon crashes with an assert failure leading to a denial of service.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
