Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The issue is triggered when the 'igb_receive_skb 'function in 'drivers/net/igb/igb_main.c' in the Intel Gigabit Ethernet subsystem has SR-IOV and promiscuous mode enabled without any VLANs registered. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a NULL pointer dereference and panic denial of service via a VLAN tagged frame.

Denial of Service
Loss of Availability
Upgrade to version 2.6.34 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
