Subject:                OpenLinux: Tcpdump flaws in ISAKMP
Advisory number:        CSSA-2004-008.0
Issue date:             2004 March 02
Cross reference:        sr889071 fz528722 erg712537 CAN-2003-0989 CAN-2004-0057 CAN-2004-0055 
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        Tcpdump prints  out  the  headers of packets on a network 
        interface.

        George Bakos discovered flaws in the ISAKMP decoding
        routines of tcpdump versions prior to 3.8.1. allows remote 
        attackers to cause a denial of service.  The Common
        Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has 
        assigned the name CAN-2003-0989 to this issue. 

        Jonathan Heusser discovered an additional flaw in the ISAKMP 
        decoding routines for tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier in the  
        rawprint function in the ISAKMP decoding routines could allow  
        attackers to cause a denial of service via malformed ISAKMP 
        packets that cause invalid "len" or "loc" values to be used 
        in a loop.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project 
        (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0057 to this 
        issue. 

        Jonathan Heusser discovered a flaw in the print_attr_string 
        function in print-radius.c for tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier 
        allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a 
        RADIUS attribute with a large length value.  The Common 
        Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the name CAN-2004-0055 to this issue. 

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package
        ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server          prior to tcpdump-3.8.1-1.i386.rpm
        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation     prior to tcpdump-3.8.1-1.i386.rpm


3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
