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.
Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.20, when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled and causes the skb structure to be freed.

Red Hat is aware of this issue and is tracking it via the following bug:
This issue did not affect the version of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG, as it was fixed since version v2.6.20-rc6. It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 in the kernel package via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0178.html. A future update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 may address this flaw.
