Description

Race condition in the inet_frag_intern function in net/ipv4/inet_fragment.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free error) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large series of fragmented ICMP Echo Request packets to a system with a heavy CPU load.

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.
