Rule:

--
Sid:
270

--
Summary:
This event is generated when an attempt is made to issue a Teardrop 
Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

--
Impact:
Denial of Service.

--
Detailed Information:
Teardrop exploits a vulnerability in some TCP/IP stack implementations.

The program sends a specially crafted fragmented packet where the first
fragment has offset 0 and data length N and the second fragment has an
offset less than N (The fragments overlap).  The resulting packet cannot
be properly assembled.

Systems may hang or crash.

--
Affected Systems:
	Windows 95
	Windows NT 4.0 SP3 and earlier
	HP HPUX 10.34 and earlier
	Linux kernels 2.0.31 and earlier
	FreeBSD 3.0 prior to October 27, 1998

--
Attack Scenarios:
The can be done remotely against any open UDP port using a spoofed
address.

--
Ease of Attack:
Simple. Tools are readily available and require little knowledge on the 
part of the attacker.

--
False Positives:
None known.

--
False Negatives:
None known.

--
Corrective Action:
Patches are available from all affected vendors.  Newer versions from
each vendor are not vulnerable.
