CVE Request -- quagga (ospf6d): Assertion failure when removing routes (retrieving information which route to remove)
From: Jan Lieskovsky <jlieskov () redhat com>

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

  Marco d'Itri in Debian bug [1] has reported the following deficiency,
being present in 0.99.21 and possibly earlier versions of the Quagga 
routing suite:

A denial of service flaw was found in the way Quagga's ospf6d daemon
performed routes removal. In certain circumstances when removing the
route the ospf6d daemon terminated with assertion failure when trying
to determine / find, which route to remove. An OSPF6 router could use
this flaw to cause ospf6d on an adjacent router to abort.

Upstream bug report:

Could you allocate a CVE id for this?

Thank you && Regards, Jan.
