Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51339
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:835
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:835
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:835.

Ethereal[1] is a powerful network traffic analyzer with a graphical
user interface (GUI).

This update fixes several vulnerabilities[2] in Ethereal:

CVE-2004-0176: Stefan Esser discovered thirteen buffer overflows in
the dissector of the NetFlow, IGAP, EIGRP, PGM, IrDA, BGP, ISUP, and
TCAP protocol dissectors[3].

CVE-2004-0365: Jonathan Heussser discovered a denial of service
vulnerability in the RADIUS protocol dissector[4].

CVE-2004-0367: A zero-length presentation protocol selector can be
exploited to cause a denial of service[5].

These vulnerabilities can be exploited by a attacker who is able to
insert crafted packets in the wire being monitored by ethereal or
make an user open a trace file with such packets inside. When reading
this data, Ethereal will crash (characterizing a denial of service
condition) or, in the case of the buffer overflow vulnerabilities,
may execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running it
(usually root).


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