The ip6_append_data_mtu function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the IPv6
implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.10.3 does not properly
maintain information about whether the IPV6_MTU setsockopt option had
been specified, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(BUG and system crash) via a crafted application that uses the
UDP_CORK option in a setsockopt system call.
