Linux Kernel IPV6 Seqfile Handling Local Denial of Service Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a local denial-of-service vulnerability. This issue is due to a design error in the way seqfiles are handled in the kernel.

This vulnerability allows local users to cause an infinite loop, resulting in a crash and denying further service to legitimate users.

This issue affects the Linux kernel 2.6 series up to 2.6.18-stable.
