Description

Under certain conditions, receipt of a BGP UPDATE message with an invalid NEXT_HOP attribute can cause slave routing Engines to crash. The master Routing Engine may successfully install routes with the invalid NEXT_HOP (depending on normal BGP route selection criteria), and may propagate the invalid NEXT_HOP attribute to other BGP peers if the NEXT_HOP is not rewritten by local BGP export policy.
