Changelog from WinPcap 4.0.1

- Disabled support for monitor mode (also called TME, Table Management
  Extensions) in the driver. This module suffers from several security
  vulnerabilities that could result in BSODs or privilege escalation
  attacks. This fix addresses a security vulnerability reported by the
  iDefense Labs.

- Bug fixing:
  * Added a missing NULL pointer check in pcap_open()
  * Fixed a misplaced #ifdef WIN32 directive in pcap_open().
  * Fixed a bug in the send routine of the driver that could cause a
    crash under low resources conditions.
  * Fixed a bug in the installer causing a mis-detection of a previous
    WinPcap installation
  * Minor cleanup of some #define directives in the driver (to disable
    the TME extensions).
