Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51426
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:662
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:662
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2003:662.

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

This update announcement addresses several vulnerabilities[2,3] in
ethereal versions <= 0.9.12. 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. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities can
lead to denial of service conditions and/or remote execution of
arbitrary code.

The following vulnerabilities have been fixed:

- Denial of Service (DoS) in the DCERPC dissector when trying to
decode a NDR string[4]

- Buffer overflow in the OSI dissector when decoding IPv4 or IPv6
prefixes[5]

- Denial of Service (DoS) in the SPNEGO dissector when parsing an
invalid ASN.1 value[6]

- Memory handling error in the tvb_get_nstringz0() routine when
handling a zero-length buffer size[7]

- Handling string vulnerabilities in the BGP, WTP, DNS, 802.11,
ISAKMP, WSP, CLNP, ISIS and RMI dissectors[8].

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
the names CAN-2003-04{28,29,30,31,32} to these issues, respectively.


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