Flaw: FreeBSD's Address Resolution Protocol

A vulnerability in FreeBSD's Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) implementation could be exploited by an attacker to crash the affected machine. The attacker could flood the system with bogus arp requests, causing a "system panic" and ultimately a crash. All releases of FreeBSD are affected.
