Debian Security Advisory DSA-206-1                   security () debian org

Package        : tcpdump
Problem type   : incorrect bounds checking
Debian-specific: no

The BGP decoding routines for tcpdump used incorrect bounds checking
when copying data. This could be abused by introducing malicious traffic
on a sniffed network for a denial of service attack against tcpdump,
or possibly even remote code execution.

This has been fixed in version 3.6.2-2.2.
