Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2006-1242

Original release date: 03/15/2006
Last revised: 03/07/2011
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

The ip_push_pending_frames function in Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x before 2.6.16 increments the IP ID field when sending a RST after receiving unsolicited TCP SYN-ACK packets, which allows remote attackers to conduct an Idle Scan (nmap -sI) attack, which bypasses intended protections against such attacks.

CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 (MEDIUM) (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) (legend)
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 10.0
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Low
Authentication: Not required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized disclosure of information
