Title: NetworkManager: Denial of Service (GLSA 201509-05)
Date: September 24, 2015
Improper handling of Router Advertisements in NetworkManager could
cause a Denial of Service condition in IPv6 network stacks.
NetworkManager is an universal network configuration daemon for laptops,
desktops, servers and virtualization hosts.
Vulnerable: < 1.0.2
Unaffected: >= 1.0.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
IPv6 Neighbour Discovery ICMP broadcast containing a non-route with a
low hop limit causes a Denial of Service by lowering the hop limit on
existing IPv6 routes in NetworkManager.
A remote attacker on the same network segment could cause a Denial of
Service condition in NetworkManager
There is no known workaround at this time.
All NetworkManager users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/networkmanager-1.0.2"
