Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52674
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-119-1 (tcpdump)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-119-1 (tcpdump)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tcpdump
announced via advisory USN-119-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: tcpdump

Details follow:

It was discovered that certain invalid GRE, LDP, BGP, and RSVP packets
triggered infinite loops in tcpdump, which caused tcpdump to stop
working. This could be abused by a remote attacker to bypass tcpdump
analysis of network traffic.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 3.8.3-3ubuntu0.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 3.8.3-3ubuntu0.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.
