Some bug in the kernel networking code that leaves 2.2.x kernels (all I
believe) vulnerable to DoS attacks.

The latest Debian release (2.1 aka Slink) is not vulnerable to this
attack, because it ships with a 2.0.36 kernel, which is supposedly not
affected by the reported bug.

Maybe someone should send out an announcement to the usual places.
