Hi Marc,

I read this post and was wondering how this affects the SuSE 6.3 platform,

SECURITYFOCUS.COM: MULTIPLE LINUX VENDOR 2.2.X KERNEL IP
MASQUERADING VULNERABILITIES

"A serious vulnerability exists in the IP Masquerading code
present in, but not necessarily limited to, the 2.2.x Linux
kernel. Due to poor checking of connections in the kernel code,
an attacker can potentially rewrite the UDP masquerading entries,
making it possible for UDP packets to be routed back to the
internal machine."

TIA

Cheers,

John
