Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA425] DSA-425-1 tcpdump

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-425-1 tcpdump

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in tcpdump, a tool for
inspecting network traffic. If a vulnerable version of tcpdump
attempted to examine a maliciously constructed packet, a number of
buffer overflows could be exploited to crash tcpdump, or potentially
execute arbitrary code with the rights of the tcpdump process.
For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 3.6.2-2.7.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you update your tcpdump package.
