Linux Kernel IPv6 TCP Sockets Local Denial of Service Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability.

Exploiting this issue allows local attackers to cause the kernel to crash, effectively denying service to legitimate users. Attackers may also be able to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges, but this has not been confirmed.

This issue affects the Linux kernel 2.6 series.
