Description

Packets are improperly forwarded when destined to the broadcast or network address of a nonbroadcast point-to-point interface. If the router at the far end of the link is also susceptible to this problem, it may forward the packets back onto the link, causing the packets to loop and to consume bandwidth until their TTLs expire.
