kernel: denial of service

Package(s):kernel CVE #(s):CVE-2008-4609
Created:October 2, 2009 Updated:October 7, 2009
Description: From the SUSE advisory: Outpost24 AB researchers Robert E. Lee and Jack C. Louis have found TCP/IP denial of service vulnerabilities which allow remote attackers to allocate resources (memory and socket slots) on a targeted system indefinitely and so may cause a denial of the services on the attacked machine.

The attack requires the attacker to be able to establish TCP/IP connections on the machine. If all incoming connections are blocked, the system is not affected.
