 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDKSA-2005:193-1
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : ethereal
 Date    : October 26, 2005
 Affected: 10.2, 2006.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 Ethereal 0.10.13 is now available fixing a number of security
 vulnerabilities in various dissectors:
 
 - the ISAKMP dissector could exhaust system memory
 - the FC-FCS dissector could exhaust system memory
 - the RSVP dissector could exhaust system memory
 - the ISIS LSP dissector could exhaust system memory
 - the IrDA dissector could crash
 - the SLIMP3 dissector could overflow a buffer
 - the BER dissector was susceptible to an infinite loop
 - the SCSI dissector could dereference a null pointer and crash
 - the sFlow dissector could dereference a null pointer and crash
 - the RTnet dissector could dereference a null pointer and crash
 - the SigComp UDVM could go into an infinite loop or crash
 - the X11 dissector could attempt to divide by zero
 - if SMB transaction payload reassembly is enabled the SMB dissector
   could crash (by default this is disabled)
 - if the "Dissect unknown RPC program numbers" option was enabled, the
   ONC RPC dissector might be able to exhaust system memory (by default
   this is disabled)
 - the AgentX dissector could overflow a buffer
 - the WSP dissector could free an invalid pointer
 - iDEFENSE discovered a buffer overflow in the SRVLOC dissector
 
 The new version of Ethereal is provided and corrects all of these
 issues.

 Update:

 An infinite loop in the IRC dissector was also discovered and fixed
 after the 0.10.13 release.  The updated packages include the fix.
