CVE-2004-0230 at MITRE

Description

TCP, when using a large Window Size, makes it easier for remote attackers to guess sequence numbers and cause a denial of service (connection loss) to persistent TCP connections by repeatedly injecting a TCP RST packet, especially in protocols that use long-lived connections, such as BGP.

Note from the SUSE Security Team

This vulnerability is mostly a weakness in the TCP/IP protocol, and has several preconditions before an exploit is even possible. This makes it a non-issue for almost all existing setups. Please refer also to information on TA04-111A CERT alert and the Linux Weekly News Article.,This problem was fixed in the 3.0.58 stable kernel (but only for SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 and SP4). It is also fixed in Linux Kernel 3.5 and newer, so SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 was fixed before shipment.
