-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- PACKAGE : ethereal SUMMARY : Fixes for security vulnerabilities in ethereal DATE : 2005-03-28 13:52:00 ID : CLA-2005:942 RELEVANT RELEASES : 9, 10 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION Ethereal[1] is a powerful network traffic analyzer with a graphical user interface (GUI). This update fixes several vulnerabilities[2,3] in ethereal: CAN-2005-0006[4]: The COPS dissector could go into an infinite loop. CAN-2005-0007[5]: The DLSw dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit prematurely. CAN-2005-0008[6]: The DNP dissector could cause memory corruption. CAN-2005-0009[7]: The Gnutella dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit prematurely. CAN-2005-0010[8]: The MMSE dissector could free static memory. CAN-2005-0084[9]: The X11 protocol dissector is vulnerable to a string buffer overflow. CAN-2005-0699[10]: Diego Giago discovered a buffer overflow in the 3GPP2 A11 dissector. CAN-2005-0704[11]: Matevz Pustisek discovered a buffer overflow in the Etheric dissector. CAN-2005-0705[12]: The GPRS-LLC dissector could crash if the "ignore cipher bit" option was enabled. CAN-2005-0739[13]: Leon Juranic discovered a buffer overflow in the IAPP dissector. Also, it fixes other two issues: a bug in the JXTA and sFlow dissectors that could make Ethereal crash. SOLUTION It is recommended that all ethereal users upgrade their packages.
