Impact: Sustained exploitation of the TCP injection vulnerability with regard to the BGP vulnerability could lead to a denial-of-service condition that could affect a large segment of the Internet community. Normal operations would most likely resume shortly after the attack stopped.
Since the TCP/IP Initial Sequence Number vulnerability (VU#498440) has been proven more viable of an attack, any services or sites that rely on persistent TCP sessions could also be affected by this vulnerability. Impacts could range from data corruption or session hijacking to a denial-of-service condition.
