Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51524
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:505
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:505
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2002:505.

Ethereal is a powerful network traffic analyzer with an intuitive
interface.

This update addresses several vulnerabilities in ethereal <= 0.9.4 as
stated[1][2] in the project's home page. The following protocol
dissectors were vulnerable to various kinds of attacks (mainly DoS
and arbitrary code execution): BGP, X11, DNS, GIOP, WCP, SOCKS, RSVP,
AFS and LMP.

These vulnerabilities can be exploited by an attacker who can insert
crafted packets in the wire being monitored by ethereal or make an
user open a trace file with such packets inside.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
