Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:030: 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-2004:030 (tcpdump).


A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in tcpdump versions prior to 3.8.1
that, if fed a maliciously crafted packet, could be exploited to crash tcpdump.
These vulnerabilities include:
Remote attackers can cause a denial of service (crash) via ISAKMP packets
containing a Delete payload with a large number of SPI's, which causes an
out-of-bounds read. (CVE-2004-1083)
Integer underflow in the isakmp_id_print permits remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) via an ISAKMP packet with an Identification payload
with a length that becomes less than 8 during byte order conversion, which
causes an out-of-bounds read. (CVE-2004-0184)
The updated packages are patched to correct these problems.
