Description

The BGP daemon (bgpd) in all IP Infusion ZebOS versions to 7.10.6 and all OcNOS versions to 1.3.3.145 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service attack via an autonomous system (AS) path containing 8 or more autonomous system number (ASN) elements. (CVE-2018-17539)

Impact

Dynamic routing is disrupted while the BIG-IP Advanced Routing Module (BIG-IP ARM) bgpd process restarts.
