The dccp_rcv_state_process function in net/dccp/input.c in the
Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) implementation in the
Linux kernel before 2.6.38 does not properly handle packets for a
CLOSED endpoint, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by sending a DCCP-Close
packet followed by a DCCP-Reset packet.
