Redid my testing from a remote system and confirmed I was wrong. Please REJECT CVE-2012-3541, I have confirmed it behaves as expected, annoyingly it does filter UDP, but not TCP, as the man page states (this feature is a whole other discussion). Why the -h option only handles UDP and not TCP... anyways. -- Kurt Seifried -- Red Hat -- Product Security -- Cloud PGP A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (820 bytes)
