Subject: CVE Request: Multiple remote denial of service in Linux bridge networking code 2.6.37-3.0


Linux kernel 2.6.37 introduced with this commit;a=commit;h=462fb2af9788a82a534f8184abfde31574e1cfa0
several regressions that be used to trigger remote denial of service attacks when
bridging is in use.

Reporter thread is on:

Fixes are in git commits:;a=commit;h=f8e9881c2aef1e982e5abc25c046820cd0b7cf64
		In 2.6.39;a=commit;h=66944e1c5797562cebe2d1857d46dff60bf9a69e
		In 2.6.39;a=commit;h=c65353daf137dd41f3ede3baf62d561fca076228
		In 3.0;a=commit;h=10949550bd1e50cc91c0f5085f7080a44b0871fe
		In 3.0
So it can be considered fixed with Linux kernel 3.0.
Thanks to Eugene for looking up the commit ids.

I think it just needs one CVE, as it was one introducing patch.

Ciao, Marcus
