Microsoft IPV6 TCPIP Loopback LAND DOS Vulnerability

Unread postby 'KotaGuy » May 17th, 2005, 2:39 pm

"The Microsoft Windows IPV6 TCP/IP stack is prone to a "loopback" condition initiated by sending a TCP packet with the "SYN" flag set and the source address and port spoofed to equal the destination source and port.

When a packet of this type is handled, an infinite loop is initiated and the affected system halts.

A remote attacker may exploit this issue to deny service for legitimate users.

This issue is reported to affect Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows 2003 Server Service Pack 1."
