Linux Kernel 'sctp_process_unk_param()' 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 the kernel to crash, denying service to legitimate users. Given the nature of this issue, attackers may also be able to run arbitrary code, but this has not been confirmed.
