High Nessus Plugin ID 92885
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe 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.
