Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA313] DSA-313-1 ethereal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-313-1 ethereal

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Timo Sirainen discovered several vulnerabilities in ethereal, a
network traffic analyzer. These include one-byte buffer overflows in
the AIM, GIOP Gryphon, OSPF, PPTP, Quake, Quake2, Quake3, Rsync, SMB,
SMPP, and TSP dissectors, and integer overflows in the Mount and PPP
dissectors.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.4-1woody4.
The old stable distribution (potato) does not appear to contain these
vulnerabilities.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in version
0.9.12-1.
We recommend that you update your ethereal package.
