    I just read that and was about to post it... what does this mean for people running servers? Do I need to update linux/windows with a new tcp stack or does this only effect routers/bgp sessions?

    Is this something that can knock down any server or just specific services (such as DNS, bgp, ssl as indicated in the advisory)

    This means that remote attackers may be able to close established TCP connections if they know the source and destination IP addresses and port numbers. It doesn't appear to me that this should cause any (direct) concern to people running web-hosting servers. You should worry more about what your upstream is doing to protect their routers from it. :)
