Description

Certain crafted BGP UPDATE messages are incorrectly determined to contain an Invalid Path Attribute. Upon receipt of one of these UPDATE message, a NOTIFY message is sent to the peer with an error code of "UPDATE message error" (3) and a sub-code of "Malformed Attribute List" (1), and the peering session is terminated. The peering session will usually be re-established; however, as soon as the peer re-sends the crafted UPDATE message the session will once again be torn down.
