Description

It was discovered that Quagga did not correctly verify length information sent from configured peers. Remote malicious peers could send a specially crafted UPDATE message which would cause bgpd to abort, leading to a denial of service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
