CVE-2005-1184

Summary

The TCP/IP stack in multiple operating systems allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a TCP packet with the correct sequence number but the wrong Acknowledgement number, which generates a large number of "keep alive" packets. NOTE: some followups indicate that this issue could not be replicated.
