CVE-2016-9555

Priority
Description
The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel
before 4.8.8 lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access)
or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data.
Ubuntu-Description
Andrey Konovalov discovered that the SCTP implementation in the Linux
kernel improperly handled validation of incoming data. A remote attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
