CVE-2005-4440 - Unspecified vulnerability in Vlan Protocol 802.1q

Publication: 2005-12-21
Summary

The 802.1q VLAN protocol allows remote attackers to bypass network segmentation and spoof VLAN traffic via a message with two 802.1q tags, which causes the second tag to be redirected from a downstream switch after the first tag has been stripped, as demonstrated by Yersinia, aka "double-tagging VLAN jumping attack."
