<h2> Description of Problem</h2>
<div>
<div>
<div>
<p>Several vulnerabilities in TCP/IP reassembly commonly known as SegmentSmack and FragmentSmack have recently been disclosed. SegmentSmack is CVE-2018-5390 for Linux and CVE-2018-6922 for FreeBSD. FragmentSmack is CVE-2018-5391 for Linux and CVE-2018-6923 for FreeBSD. These vulnerabilities could potentially allow an attacker that has the ability to maintain a TCP or IP stream with a vulnerable component to send crafted packets that cause high CPU usage or CPU resource exhaustion leading to denial of service.</p>
<p>Vulnerable reassembly is provided by some Linux-based or FreeBSD-based operating systems. Customers managing Linux or FreeBSD platforms on which Citrix components are deployed are advised to apply any appropriate operating system updates.</p>
<p>The following sections provide guidance on the impact and mitigation steps for Linux-based and FreeBSD-based Citrix products. Citrix products that do not include or execute on these platforms are not impacted by this vulnerability.</p>
<p>Windows-based components of XenDesktop and XenApp are not impacted by this issue.</p>
