ZyXEL ZyNOS remote service DoS



18th Jun 2002 [SBWID-5462]
COMMAND

	ZyXEL ZyNOS remote service DoS

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

	ZyXEL 642R(-11) AJ.6 and other routers based on ZyNOS

PROBLEM

	Ueli          Kistler          [iuk@gmx.ch]          of          eclipse
	[http://www.packx.net][http://www.eclipse.fr.fm], says :
	

	A ZyXEL router service can be crashed  by  sending  a  packet  with  TCP
	flags ACK and SYN set  at  the  same  time.  The  service  will  not  be
	available  even  through  RS-232.  Using  a  SYN-FIN  packet  will  make
	inaccessible the service port for a few minutes.
	

	Affected services on  ZyXEL  642R-11  are:  TELNET,  FTP  and  DHCP  (if
	enabled). TELNET and FTP cannot be deactivated.
