FreeBSD : FreeBSD -- SCTP stream reset vulnerability (0aad3ce5-600a-11e6-a6c3-14dae9d210b8)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92885


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The input validation of received SCTP RE_CONFIG chunks is insufficient, and can result in a NULL pointer deference later. Impact : A remote attacker who can send a malformed SCTP packet to a FreeBSD system that serves SCTP can cause a kernel panic, resulting in a Denial of Service.


Update the affected packages.
