AIX 7.1 TL 2 : inet (IV42095)

High Nessus Plugin ID 66787


The remote AIX host is missing a security patch.


If an AIX machine has IPv6 address configured, and if a malformed IPv6 packet in a specific format is sent to that machine, the machine can hang while processing that packet. The problem can happen only if an IPv6 address is configured on any of the network interfaces.


Install the appropriate interim fix.
