FreeBSD -- routed(8) remote denial of service vulnerability
The input path in routed(8) will accept queries from any
source and attempt to answer them. However, the output path
assumes that the destination address for the response is
on a directly connected network.
Upon receipt of a query from a source which is not on a
directly connected network, routed(8) will trigger an
assertion and terminate. The affected system's routing table
will no longer be updated. If the affected system is a
router, its routes will eventually expire from other routers'
routing tables, and its networks will no longer be reachable
unless they are also connected to another router.
