Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:096
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : quagga
Date : May 2, 2007
Affected: Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The BGP routing daemon in Quagga did not properly validate length
values in NLRI attributes which could allow a remote attacker to cause
a denial of service via a crafted UPDATE message that triggered an
assertion error or out of bounds read.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
