says it was posted here, but google says otherwise.(I searched recent
posts for IPv6 or black hat or DOS and got nothing). What's up with
that?

the SA says:
Summary
Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOSŪ) Software is vulnerable to a
Denial of Service (DoS) and potentially an arbitrary code execution attack
from a specifically crafted IPv6 packet. The packet must be sent from a
local network segment. Only devices that have been explicitly configured to
process IPv6 traffic are affected. Upon successful exploitation, the device
may reload or be open to further exploitation.

Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability for all
affected customers.

This advisory will be posted at
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707...729-ipv6.shtml.
