Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1201] DSA-1201-1 ethereal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1201-1 ethereal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Ethereal network
scanner. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:
It was discovered that the MIME multipart dissector is vulnerable to
denial of service caused by an off-by-one overflow.
It was discovered that the XOT dissector is vulnerable to denial
of service caused by memory corruption.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge9. Due to technical problems with the security
buildd infrastructure this update lacks builds for the hppa and sparc
architecture. They will be released as soon as the problems are resolved.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
