FreeBSD : quagga -- Denial of Service (2748fdde-3a3c-11de-bbc5-00e0815b8da8)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38697


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Debian 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.


Update the affected package.
