For the vulnerability called TCP SACK panic([1], [2], [3], and many more): is there a proof of concept code out there that can be used to test vulnerability status and effectiveness of remedies?

There appears to be a proof of concept on github:


  • I'll accept it for now. The repository doesn't have any explanation or documentation on it and although at first brush looks to be relevant, I won't know until I can find the time to test it myself. – Aethalides Sep 15 at 14:29
