CVE-2011-1478

Priority
Description
The napi_reuse_skb function in net/core/dev.c in the Generic Receive
Offload (GRO) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38 does not
reset the values of certain structure members, which might allow remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a
malformed VLAN frame.
Ubuntu-Description
Ryan Sweat discovered that the GRO code did not correctly validate memory.
In some configurations on systems using VLANs, a remote attacker could send
specially crafted traffic to crash the system, leading to a denial of
service.
