Description

During internal conformance testing, two independent issues were found in BGP, both of which result in an rpd crash: 1. Receipt of a crafted malformed non-transitive BGP PATH attribute 2. An established session disconnecting before BGP could send the first keepalive message The first issue caused the router to read past the end of an array. The second issue caused by an assert in the subsequent cleanup executed before the first keepalive could be sent.
