CVE-2016-1879

Status Candidate

Overview

The Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) module in FreeBSD 9.3 before p33, 10.1 before p26, and 10.2 before p9, when the kernel is configured for IPv6, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure or NULL pointer dereference and kernel panic) via a crafted ICMPv6 packet.

FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-16:01.sctp
Posted Jan 15, 2016
Authored by Jonathan T. Looney

FreeBSD Security Advisory - A lack of proper input checks in the ICMPv6 processing in the SCTP stack can lead to either a failed kernel assertion or to a NULL pointer dereference. In either case, a kernel panic will follow. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can reliably trigger a kernel panic in a vulnerable system running IPv6. Any kernel compiled with both IPv6 and SCTP support is vulnerable. There is no requirement to have an SCTP socket open. IPv4 ICMP processing is not impacted by this vulnerability.
