DLink IP Fragment Denial Of Service

by Phiber on September 9th, 2001 A problem has been discovered in the Dl-704 router. Upon receiving a high amount of fragmented IP packets, the router begins to become resource starved. After receiving these packets for a period greater than two minutes, the router will become unstable, ceasing operation.


This results in a denial of service users on either side of the router. A power cycling is required to resume normal operation.


Solution:

D-Link upgrade V2.56b6


FYI:

The DLink Dl-704 is a DSL/Cable router and switch designed for home network use.


This vulnerability was announced by Fate Labs via Bugtraq on September 6, 2001.
