Resource Management Errors
The rt6_fill_node function in net/ipv6/route.c in Linux kernel 2.6.26-rc4, 220.127.116.11, and possibly other 2.6.26 versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) via IPv6 requests when no IPv6 input device is in use, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors
Resource management errors is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to improper management of system resources. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category can lead to unexpected software behavior, loss of access, file modification, sensitive information disclosure, system crash, denial of service, and code execution.
