If one of the RA speaker now changes the advertised expiration to a lower value and a third route with infinite timeout pops up we end up with a BUG_ON. Remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. Fixed by: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=307f2fb95e9b96b3577916e73d92e104f8f26494 Introduced by: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=51ebd3181572af8d5076808dab2682d800f6da5d Introduced in upstream version: v3.7-rc1 Acknowledgements: Red Hat would like to thank Hannes Frederic Sowa for reporting this issue. -- Petr Matousek / Red Hat Security Response Team
