Linux Kernel 'sctp_setsockopt_auth_key()' Remote Denial of Service Vulnerability

The Linux kernel is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly handle user-supplied input.

Attackers can exploit this issue to cause a kernel panic, denying service to legitimate users.

Versions since Linux kernel 2.6.24-rc1 are vulnerable.
