Test ID:
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:056 (tcpdump)

The remote host is missing an update to tcpdump
announced via advisory MDKSA-2007:056.

Off-by-one buffer overflow in the parse_elements function in the 802.11
printer code (print-802_11.c) for tcpdump 3.9.5 and earlier allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted
802.11 frame. NOTE: this was originally referred to as heap-based, but
it might be stack-based.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.

Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0

To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

Risk factor : High
