Device cores while processing an ICMPv6 packet. TMM segfaults.
The system produces a core file. Potential outages. The issue might not have occurred under the same conditions in previous releases, because it is related to memory initialization. However, it is an issue associated with AFM.
Incoming ICMP error packet is forwarded after being vetted by the Access Control List. This occurs with AFM provisioned.
None. Note: The issue of ICMP errors causing TMM to segfault was indirectly fixed by the changes made for a separate bug: 521774. With the fix from bug 521774, the underlying issue no longer occurs, so AFM does not encounter this memory initialization issue any longer.
