Bug#776416: kfreebsd-10: CVE-2014-8613: SCTP stream reset vulnerability

Package: kfreebsd-10
Version: 10.1~svn274115-1
Severity: grave
Tags: security patch


A unprivileged local DoS was reported in the FreeBSD kernel
implementation of SCTP:

This only affects systems serving SCTP connections.  A patch from
upstream should be uploaded soon fixing this in kfreebsd-10.

kfreebsd-9 in stable is not affected, since the last security upload
9.0-10+deb70.8 disabled this protocol.

kfreebsd-8 does not receive regular security updates, but we may decide
to disable SCTP there too.  (It's expected nobody would be using SCTP in
GNU/kFreeBSD squeeze or prior, because no userland tools had been ported
