LXer: Widespread Linux Flaw Allows TCP Session Hijacking, Termination

Published at LXer:

The TCP implementation in all Linux systems built since 2012 has a serious flaw that can allow an attacker to terminate or inject data into a session between any two vulnerable machines on the Internet. The bug could also be used to end encrypted connections or downgrade the privacy of connections run through Tor or other anonymity networks.
