Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2002-121: arpwatch

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the arpwatch packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated tcpdump, libpcap, and arpwatch packages are available. These
updates close a buffer overflow when handling NFS packets.

tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic. Versions of
tcpdump up to and including 3.6.2 have a buffer overflow that can be
triggered when tracing the network by a bad NFS packet.

We are not yet aware if this issue is fully exploitable
however, users of
tcpdump are advised to upgrade to these errata packages which contain a
patch for this issue.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2002-0380 to this issue. This issue was found by
David Woodhouse of Red Hat.
