Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51111
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:234
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:234.

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

The MMSE dissector in Ethereal releases 0.10.1 through 0.10.3 contained a
buffer overflow flaw. On a system where Ethereal is running, a remote
attacker could send malicious packets that could cause Ethereal to crash or
execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0507 to this issue.

In addition, other flaws in Ethereal prior to 0.10.4 were found that could
cause it to crash in response to carefully crafted SIP (CVE-2004-0504), AIM
(CVE-2004-0505), or SPNEGO (CVE-2004-0506) packets.

Users of Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported security patches that correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
