Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA206] DSA-206-1 tcpdump

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The BGP decoding routines for tcpdump used incorrect bounds checking
when copying data. This could be abused by introducing malicious traffic
on a sniffed network for a denial of service attack against tcpdump,
or possibly even remote code execution.
This has been fixed in version 3.6.2-2.2.
