Re: New possible exploit for 2.0.33 (kfree_skb error)

This could be the sign of a new exploit. I have also managed to find a few
others on IRC that have had the same exact error message. If anyone knows
what exactly causes it and how to fix it please let us know.   The
"syndrop" program generates the kfree error but it does not crash the box
(at least the one that I have tested)

I've been given 2 copies of a syndrop program, and right now I can make
neither break my boxes. Which is proving in this case troublesome to fixing
things. If its directly syndrop related then firewalling packets from
your source address incoming via external interfaces should block it.
Remember also to cover 127.*

Below this there should be a function trace, although your stack trace
looks a bit weird in itself. The call trace is important.

Im looking into these but the more info I get the better
