|ID: oval:org.secpod.oval:def:21819||Date: (C)2014-12-01 (M)2018-09-27|
|Class: VULNERABILITY||Family: unix|
The host is installed with Linux kernel before 3.16.3 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which does not properly handle deletion of IPC$ share during resolution of DFS referrals. Successful exploitation allows remote CIFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and client system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
