Title: iproute2: Denial of service (GLSA 202008-06)
A use-after-free was found in iproute2, possibly allowing a Denial
of Service condition.
iproute2 is a set of tools for managing Linux network routing and
Vulnerable: < 5.1.0
Unaffected: >= 5.1.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
iproute2 was found to contain a use-after-free in get_netnsid_from_name
A remote attacker, able to feed iproute2 crafted data, may be able to
cause a Denial of Service condition.
