FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-18:10.ip
Posted Aug 15, 2018
Authored by Juha-Matti Tilli | Site security.freebsd.org

FreeBSD Security Advisory - A researcher has notified us of a DoS attack applicable to another operating system. While FreeBSD may not be vulnerable to that exact attack, we have identified several places where inadequate DoS protection could allow an attacker to consume system resources. It is not necessary that the attacker be able to establish two-way communication to carry out these attacks. These attacks impact both IPv4 and IPv6 fragment reassembly. In the worst case, an attacker could send a stream of crafted fragments with a low packet rate which would consume a substantial amount of CPU. Other attack vectors allow an attacker to send a stream of crafted fragments which could consume a large amount of CPU or all available mbuf clusters on the system. These attacks could temporarily render a system unreachable through network interfaces or temporarily render a system unresponsive. The effects of the attack should clear within 60 seconds after the attack stops.

FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-18:08.tcp
Posted Aug 7, 2018

FreeBSD Security Advisory - One of the data structures that holds TCP segments uses an inefficient algorithm to reassemble the data. This causes the CPU time spent on segment processing to grow linearly with the number of segments in the reassembly queue. An attacker who has the ability to send TCP traffic to a victim system can degrade the victim system's network performance and/or consume excessive CPU by exploiting the inefficiency of TCP reassembly handling, with relatively small bandwidth cost.
