Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53082
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-141-1 (tcpdump)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-141-1 (tcpdump)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tcpdump
announced via advisory USN-141-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

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

The following packages are affected: tcpdump

It was discovered that certain invalid BGP packets triggered an
infinite loop 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 3.8.3-3ubuntu0.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 3.8.3-3ubuntu0.4 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.
