This strike exploits a vulnerability in the Linux kernel. The target network interface card must support UDP Fragmentation offload to be vulnerable to this attack. By issuing a TFTP request over IPv6 with a blocksize larger than the MTU, the TFTP daemon on the vulnerable server will send a large packet resulting in a kernel panic, causing a denial of service condition.
