Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:056: tcpdump

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tcpdump package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:056 (tcpdump).


A number of remote buffer overflows were discovered in the tcpdump package that
would permit a remote attack of the local tcpdump process. Intrusion detection
using tcpdump would no longer be useful due to the attack stoping all network
activity on the system. As well, this new version of tcpdump fixes the
vulnerability with decoding AFS ACL packets which would permit a remote attacker
to run arbitrary code on the local system with root privilege.
