Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-136: ethereal

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ethereal packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Ethereal packages that fix various security vulnerabilities are now
available.

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Stefan Esser reported that Ethereal versions 0.10.1 and earlier contain
stack overflows in the IGRP, PGM, Metflow, ISUP, TCAP, or IGAP dissectors.
On a system where Ethereal is being run a remote attacker could send
malicious packets that could cause Ethereal to crash or execute arbitrary
code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0176 to this issue.

Jonathan Heussser discovered that a carefully-crafted RADIUS packet could
cause a crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0365 to this issue.

Ethereal 0.8.13 to 0.10.2 permits remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via a zero-length Presentation protocol selector. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2004-0367 to this issue.

Users of Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
a version of Ethereal that is not vulnerable to these issues.
