• Severity Rating • Fix Information • Vulnerable Software Versions • SCAP Mappings
The accept_filter mechanism in FreeBSD 4 through 4.5 does not properly remove entries from the incomplete listen queue when adding a syncache, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (network service availability) via a large number of connection attempts, which fills the queue.
Note: References are provided for the convenience of the reader to help distinguish between vulnerabilities. The list is not intended to be complete.
