This vulnerability has been modified since it was last analyzed by the NVD. It is awaiting reanalysis which may result in further changes to the information provided.
The rt6_fill_node function in net/ipv6/route.c in Linux kernel 2.6.26-rc4, 22.214.171.124, and possibly other 2.6.26 versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) via IPv6 requests when no IPv6 input device is in use, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
