CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : tcpdump
SUMMARY   : Buffer Overflow when parsing NFS traffic
DATE      : 2002-06-05 13:53:00
ID        : CLA-2002:491
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 6.0, 7.0, 8

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic.
 
 David Woodhouse <dwmw2 () redhat com> discovered[1] a buffer overflow
 vulnerability in tcpdump when it is parsing NFS traffic. A remote
 attacker could exploit this to at least crash the tcpdump process.
 
 Even though arpwatch and libpcap are not affected by this
 vulnerability, new packages for them are being provided for Conectiva
 Linux 6.0 and 7.0 since they are generated together with tcpdump from
 the same SRPM package.


SOLUTION
 All tcpdump users should upgrade.
