MDKSA-2004:067: ethereal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ethereal package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:067 (ethereal).


Three vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal versions prior to 0.10.5 in
the iSNS, SMB SID, and SNMP dissectors. It may be possible to make Ethereal
crash or run arbitrary code by injecting a purposefully malformed packet into
the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
These vulnerabilities have been corrected in Ethereal 0.10.5.
