Linux Kernel 'inet6_hashtables.c' NULL Pointer Dereference Denial of Service Vulnerability

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

Attackers can exploit this issue to crash the affected kernel, denying service to legitimate users. Given the nature of this issue, attackers may also be able to execute arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.

This issue was introduced in Linux kernel 2.6.27 and fixed in 2.6.29.
