The host is installed with kernel before 3.17.4 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle a malformed INIT chunk. Successful exploitation allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash).
