Intel Express Switch 500 Series Malformed ICMP Packet DoS Vulnerability

Sending a malformed ICMP packet to an Intel Express Switch or a host residing behind it will crash the system. The malformed packet can be sent locally or remotely and can be spoofed. In the event that the switch receives the malformed ICMP packet, it will continue to operate as a switch, however, it will lose all routing functionality and will not pick up on new connections.
