|Description:||From the Gentoo advisory:
A format string flaw in Ettercap could cause a buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to load a specially crafted configuration file using Ettercap, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the application.
