Jonathan Looney discovered that an integer overflow existed in the Linux kernel when handling TCP Selective Acknowledgments (SACKs). A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). Jonathan Looney discovered that the TCP retransmission queue implementation in the Linux kernel could be fragmented when handling certain TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACK) sequences. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.
