Description:
A security issue has been reported in Apple Mac OS X, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The security issue is caused due to an error within the processing of packets with IPv6 type 0 route headers. This can be exploited to cause a DoS due to high network traffic by sending specially crafted IPv6 packets to vulnerable systems.

The security issue is reported in versions prior to Mac OS X 10.4.10.

NOTE: The security issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X 10.4.
