Vulnerability Issues in TCP
NISCC Vulnerability Advisory 236929

What is Affected?

The vulnerability described in this advisory affects implementations of 
the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that comply with the Internet 
Engineering Task Force’s (IETF’s) Requests For Comments (RFCs) for 
TCP, including RFC 793, the original specification, and RFC 1323, TCP 
Extensions for High Performance.

TCP is a core network protocol used in the majority of networked 
computer systems today. Many vendors include support for this protocol 
in their products and may be impacted to varying degrees. Furthermore 
any network service or application that relies on a TCP connection will 
also be impacted, the severity depending primarily on the duration of 
the TCP session.
