<p>NetworkManager is an universal network configuration daemon for laptops,
desktops, servers and virtualization hosts.
<p>IPv6 Neighbour Discovery ICMP broadcast containing a non-route with a
low hop limit causes a Denial of Service by lowering the hop limit on
existing IPv6 routes in NetworkManager.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker on the same network segment could cause a Denial of
Service condition in NetworkManager
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All NetworkManager users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-misc/networkmanager-1.0.2"
