Package : quagga Vulnerability : denial of service Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-1820 Debian Bug : 676510

It was discovered that Quagga, a routing daemon, contains a vulnerability in processing the ORF capability in BGP OPEN messages. A malformed OPEN message from a previously configured BGP peer could cause bgpd to crash, causing a denial of service.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.99.20.1-0+squeeze3.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 0.99.21-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your quagga packages.
