CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C

Detection Type:
Remote Banner

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Summary:
There is a DoS vulnerability in the Linux Kernel versions 4.9+ and supported versions known as a SegmentSmack attack.

Technical Details:
There is a DoS vulnerability in the Linux Kernel versions 4.9+ and supported versions known as a SegmentSmack attack. Remote attackers may send TCP packets to Linux kernel to make it calls the very expensive functions tcp_collapse_ofo_queue() and tcp_prune_ofo_queue() of the affected device which can lead to a denial of service. Maintaining the denial of service condition requires continuous two-way TCP sessions to a reachable open port. Thus, the attacks cannot be performed using spoofed IP addresses. (Vulnerability ID: HWPSIRT-2018-08114)This vulnerability has been assigned a Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) ID: CVE-2018-5390.Huawei has released software updates to fix this vulnerability. This advisory is available in the linked references.

Impact:
A remote attacker may be able to trigger a denial-of-service condition.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
