Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57271
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0602
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0602.

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

In May 2006, Ethereal changed its name to Wireshark. This update
deprecates the Ethereal packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, and 4
in favor of the supported Wireshark packages.

Several denial of service bugs were found in Ethereal's protocol
dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or stop responding if it
read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-3627, CVE-2006-3629,
CVE-2006-3631)

Several buffer overflow bugs were found in Ethereal's ANSI MAP, NCP NMAS,
and NDPStelnet dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or execute
arbitrary code if it read a malformed packet off the network.
(CVE-2006-3630, CVE-2006-3632)

Several format string bugs were found in Ethereal's Checkpoint FW-1, MQ,
XML, and NTP dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or execute
arbitrary code if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-3628)

Users of Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages containing
Wireshark version 0.99.2, which is not vulnerable to these issues

Solution:

Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
