Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the arpwatch packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated tcpdump packages that fix several security issues are now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

This updated package also adds support for output files larger than 2 GB.

Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic.

Several denial of service bugs were found in the way tcpdump processes
certain network packets. It is possible for a possible hacker to inject a
carefully crafted packet onto the network, crashing a running tcpdump
session. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the names CVE-2005-1278, CVE-2005-1279, and CVE-2005-1280 to
these issues.

The tcpdump utility can now write a file larger than 2 GB.

Users of tcpdump are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
