CVE-2019-5599

Status Candidate

Overview

In FreeBSD 12.0-STABLE before r349197 and 12.0-RELEASE before 12.0-RELEASE-p6, a bug in the non-default RACK TCP stack can allow an attacker to cause several linked lists to grow unbounded and cause an expensive list traversal on every packet being processed, leading to resource exhaustion and a denial of service.

FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-19:08.rack

FreeBSD Security Advisory - While processing acknowledgements, the RACK code uses several linked lists to maintain state entries. A malicious attacker can cause the lists to grow unbounded. This can cause an expensive list traversal on every packet being processed, leading to resource exhaustion and a denial of service. An attacker with the ability to send specially crafted TCP traffic to a victim system can degrade network performance and/or consume excessive CPU by exploiting the inefficiency of traversing the potentially very large RACK linked lists with relatively small bandwidth cost.

Linux / FreeBSD TCP-Based Denial Of Service

Netflix has identified several TCP networking vulnerabilities in FreeBSD and Linux kernels. The vulnerabilities specifically relate to the minimum segment size (MSS) and TCP Selective Acknowledgement (SACK) capabilities. The most serious, dubbed _"SACK Panic_," allows a remotely-triggered kernel panic on recent Linux kernels. There are patches that address most of these vulnerabilities. If patches can not be applied, certain mitigations will be effective.
