USN-2595-1: ppp vulnerability
05 May 2015
ppp could be made to crash if it received specially crafted network traffic.
- ppp - Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)
It was discovered that ppp incorrectly handled large PIDs. When pppd is
used with a RADIUS server, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause
it to crash, resulting in a denial of service.
