The ip_evictor function in ip_fragment.c in libnids before 1.24, as used in dsniff and possibly other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via crafted fragmented packets.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
