Description

The Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38 does not properly handle congestion map updates, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG_ON and system crash) via vectors involving (1) a loopback (aka loop) transmit operation or (2) an InfiniBand (aka ib) transmit operation.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ofed-kmp-rt
  • suse-upgrade-suse-linux-enterprise-rt-release

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
