Description

During internal stress and conformance testing of the PIM multicast protocol, the rpd routing daemon on the router crashed. The crash was triggered by a specifically crafted bootstrap message (BSM) received by the PIM router. Due to the inconsistent values found in the messages, rpd executed an unhandled exception and crashed. This issue can affect both IPv4 PIM and IPv6 PIM (PIMv6).
