A memory freeing vulnerability in the Linux kernel module ip_nat_snmp_basic can be exploited to create a denial-of-service condition.
The ip_nat_snmp_basic IP NAT module is intended for use with SNMP network discovery and monitoring applications where target networks use conflicting private IP addresses .
A remote attacker could cause a system running Linux kernel version < 188.8.131.52 with the ip_nat_snmp_basic module loaded to crash. This results in a denial-of-service condition.
