F5 Networks BIG-IP : Linux kernel vulnerability (K17307)
High Nessus Plugin ID 97307
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionThe (1) udp_recvmsg and (2) udpv6_recvmsg functions in the Linux kernel before 4.0.6 do not properly consider yielding a processor, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system hang) via incorrect checksums within a UDP packet flood.
