CVE-2004-0791 - Irreducible Elephant


Multiple TCP/IP and ICMP implementations allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (network throughput reduction for TCP connections) via a blind throughput-reduction attack using spoofed Source Quench packets aka the \ICMP Source Quench attack.\ NOTE: CVE-2004-0790 CVE-2004-0791 and CVE-2004-1060 have been SPLIT based on different attacks; CVE-2005-0065 CVE-2005-0066 CVE-2005-0067 and CVE-2005-0068 are related identifiers that are SPLIT based on the underlying vulnerability. While CVE normally SPLITs based on vulnerability the attack-based identifiers exist due to the variety and number of affected implementations and solutions that address the attacks instead of the underlying vulnerabilities.
