Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2005-2872

Original release date: 09/09/2005
Last revised: 03/07/2011
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

The ipt_recent kernel module (ipt_recent.c) in Linux kernel before 2.6.12, when running on 64-bit processors such as AMD64, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via certain attacks such as SSH brute force, which leads to memset calls using a length based on the u_int32_t type, acting on an array of unsigned long elements, a different vulnerability than CVE-2005-2873.

Impact

CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0 MEDIUM
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 disruption of service
