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.
