Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1127] DSA-1127-1 ethereal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1127-1 ethereal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Ethereal network
sniffer, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the FW-1 and MQ dissectors are
vulnerable to format string attacks.
Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the MOUNT dissector is vulnerable
to denial of service through memory exhaustion.
Ilja van Sprundel discovered off-by-one overflows in the NCP NMAS and
NDPS dissectors.
Ilja van Sprundel discovered a buffer overflow in the NFS dissector.
Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the SSH dissector is vulnerable
to denial of service through an infinite loop.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.99.2-1 of wireshark, the sniffer formerly known as ethereal.
We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
