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.

A number of security flaws have been discovered in Ethereal. On a system
where Ethereal is running, a remote attacker could send malicious packets
to trigger these flaws.

A flaw in the DICOM dissector could cause a crash. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-1139 to this issue.

A invalid RTP timestamp could hang Ethereal and create a large temporary
file, possibly filling available disk space. (CVE-2004-1140)

The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a crash.
(CVE-2004-1141)

An improperly formatted SMB packet could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU
utilization. (CVE-2004-1142)

The COPS dissector could go into an infinite loop. (CVE-2005-0006)

The DLSw dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit
prematurely. (CVE-2005-0007)

The DNP dissector could cause memory corruption. (CVE-2005-0008)

The Gnutella dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit
prematurely. (CVE-2005-0009)

The MMSE dissector could free static memory, causing a crash. (CVE-2005-0010)

The X11 protocol dissector is vulnerable to a string buffer overflow.
(CVE-2005-0084)

Users of Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages which contain
version 0.10.9 that is not vulnerable to these issues.
