[Important] [CVE-2015-1166] onos-of-ctl: denial-of-service (DoS) due to exception handling while deserializing malformed packets
It was found that the packet deserializers in ONOS would throw exceptions when handling malformed, truncated or maliciously-crafted packets. The exceptions were not caught and handled, which would result in the relevant switch being disconnected because an exception occurred in an I/O thread. A remote unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to perform a denial-of-service (DoS) attack by causing ONOS to disconnect switches. See ONOS-605 for more details.
ONOS 1.0.0 Avocet is confirmed to be affected.
Avocet 1.0.1 contains the fix and this patched build is available here.
This issue was reported by Charles M.C. Chan and Jonathan Hart.
