IPv6 doom: the rogue RA bug

In this article I describe a problem which I and others have seen in the wild many times, whereby a single broken host will severely cripple the ability of other hosts on the local network to reach IPv6-capable (dual-stack) servers, regardless of whether the local network has deployed IPv6. This is primarily aimed at network administrators, although the problem affects many people.
