SubjectRe: [PATCH] IPv6: Don't Process ND Messages with Invalid Options
   From: YOSHIFUJI Hideaki / 吉藤英明 <>
Date: Wed, 25 Sep 2002 13:30:31 +0900 (JST)

Linux happened to process invalid ND messages with invalid options
such as
- length of ND options is 0
- length of ND options is not enough
Specification says that such messages must be silently discarded.
This patch parses/checks ND options before it changes state of
neighbour / address etc. and ignores such messages.

Following patch is against linux-2.4.19.

Patch applied to 2.4.x and 2.5.x, thanks a lot.

Let us hope more patches like this one are coming :-)
