    IPv6 Issues

    Hey Hey,

    I just wanted to pop in and share this (I'm still on my honeymoon, so not a lot of time for internet). However feel free to read and ask questions, I'll answer them all as time permits.

    I found a couple of issues:

    1) 100% CPU Utilization on Windows XP when you publish thousands of IPv6 addresses.

    2) The ability to prevent a machine from learning "valid" IPv6 addresses by taking advantage of built in protection from the issue in (1) in Windows 2003 and Ubuntu.

    This has also been assigned a BID - http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/29190/

    Anyways, back to the honeymoon.

    Peace,
    HT

    There actually wasn't... I'll post something with a link to some pictures next week when I'm technically "back online"
