Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA850] DSA-850-1 tcpdump

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-850-1 tcpdump

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"Vade 79" discovered that the BGP dissector in tcpdump, a powerful
tool for network monitoring and data acquisition, does not properly
handle RT_ROUTING_INFO. A specially crafted BGP packet can cause a
denial of service via an infinite loop.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.2-2.9.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.3-4.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.3-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump package.
