Description

A flaw in the routing table size was found in the ICMPv6 handling of Packet Too Big . The size of the routing table is regulated by periodic garbage collection. However, with Packet Too Big Messages it is possible to exceed the routing table size and garbage collector threshold. A user located in the local network or with a high bandwidth connection can increase the CPU usage of the server that accepts IPV6 connections up to 95%.
