MDKSA-2005:101: 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-2005:101 (tcpdump).



A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in tcpdump during the processing of
certain network packages. Because of this flaw, it was possible for a possible hacker
to inject a carefully crafted packet onto the network which would crash a
running tcpdump session.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem. This problem
does not affect at least tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier.
