CVE-2016-1245 (retired)

Priority
Description
It was discovered that the zebra daemon in Quagga before 1.0.20161017
suffered from a stack-based buffer overflow when processing IPv6 Neighbor
Discovery messages. The root cause was relying on BUFSIZ to be compatible
with a message size; however, BUFSIZ is system-dependent.
