Problem description

rp-pppoe is a userspace PPPoE client mainly used with ADSL connections which require PPP. Versions prior to 2.5 have a security problem that, when exploited, causes the connection to be dropped. If rp-pppoe receives a crafted TCP segment with an option where the option-length field is zero (illegal), the program would enter an infinite loop and the connection would time-out and be dropped. This is only possible if the user uses the "Clamp MSS" option.
