The remote service may be affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the installation of Quagga's BGP daemon listening on the remote host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- A denial of service vulnerability can be triggered by a malformed OPEN message from an explicitly configured BGP peer.

- A denial of service vulnerability can be triggered by a malformed COMMUNITY attribute from an explicitly configured BGP peer, when the daemon has debugging enabled.


Upgrade to version 0.99.9 or later.
