Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2002-0055

Package name:      tcpdump
Summary:           Minor bugfix
Date:              2002-06-05
Affected versions: TSL 1.1, 1.2, 1.5

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

Problem description:
  The old tcpdump-packages included a buffer overflow that could be triggered 
  when tracing the network by a bad NFS packet.
  We have updated the tcpdump package in TSL-1.1 through 1.5, and hva done some
  additional modifications in TSL-1.1 and 1.2:

  The old tcpdump source package also built the libpcap and arpwatch binary 
  packages. We feel this setup is not needed, and have added both libpcap and 
  arpwatch as independable source packages, as done in TSL-1.5.

  Due to serial being set in the old TSL-1.1 and 1.2 tcpdump packages, you must
  upgrade the libpcap, and arpwatch packages manually, using the following:

  rpm -Uvh --oldpackage [new-package]

  Note that this is not necessary when upgrading TSL-1.5

  We recommend that all systems with this package installed are upgraded.

  All TSL updates are available from
