Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51015
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:324
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:324.

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

A number of security issues affect Ethereal. By exploiting these issues,
it may be possible to make Ethereal crash or run arbitrary code by
injecting a purposefully-malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing
someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

A buffer overflow in Ethereal 0.9.15 and earlier allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
malformed GTP MSISDN string. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0925 to
this issue.

Ethereal 0.9.15 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via certain malformed ISAKMP or MEGACO packets. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2003-0926 to this issue.

A heap-based buffer overflow in Ethereal 0.9.15 and earlier allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via the SOCKS dissector. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0927
to this issue.

Users of Ethereal should update to these erratum packages containing
Ethereal version 0.9.16, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
