Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1127-1 (ethereal)
The remote host is missing an update to ethereal
announced via advisory DSA 1127-1.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Ethereal network
sniffer, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the FW-1 and MQ dissectors are
vulnerable to format string attacks.


Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the MOUNT dissector is vulnerable
to denial of service through memory exhaustion.


Ilja van Sprundel discovered off-by-one overflows in the NCP NMAS and
NDPS dissectors.


Ilja van Sprundel discovered a buffer overflow in the NFS dissector.


Ilja van Sprundel discovered that the SSH dissector is vulnerable
to denial of service through an infinite loop.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.99.2-1 of wireshark, the sniffer formerly known as ethereal.

We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
