Description

FreeBSD and OpenBSD contain a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when a malicious user sends TCP RST packets to a victim system to terminate its connection, which takes advantage of FreeBSD and OpenBSD's interpretation of sequence numbers in RST packets, and will result in loss of availability for the platform.

Classification

Location: Remote / Network Access
Impact: Loss of Availability

Solution

Currently, there are no known workarounds or upgrades to correct this issue. However, FreeBSD and OpenBSD released patches to address this vulnerability.
