Unspecified vulnerability in the TCP/IP networking stack in Sun Solaris 10, and OpenSolaris snv_01 through snv_82 and snv_111 through snv_117, when a Cassini GigaSwift Ethernet Adapter (aka CE) interface is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via vectors involving jumbo frames.
CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
Impact Subscore: 6.9
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
"Note 2: A system is only vulnerable to this issue if it is using a GigaSwift Ethernet Adapter (CE) interface (ce(7D)) which has been configured to accept jumbo frames, and hardware checksumming is enabled."
