CVE-2011-2189 (retired)

Priority
Description
net/core/net_namespace.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.32 and earlier does not
properly handle a high rate of creation and cleanup of network namespaces,
which makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) via requests to a daemon that requires a separate
namespace per connection, as demonstrated by vsftpd.
