Title:Debian LTS: Security Advisory for tcpdump (DLA-2444-1)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'tcpdump'; package(s) announced via the DLA-2444-1 advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'tcpdump'
package(s) announced via the DLA-2444-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The ppp de-capsulator in tcpdump 4.9.3 can be convinced to allocate
a large amount of memory.

The buffer should be big enough to hold the captured data, but it
doesn't need to be big enough to hold the entire on-the-network
packet, if we haven't captured all of it.

Affected Software/OS:
'tcpdump' package(s) on Debian Linux.

Solution:
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
4.9.3-1~
deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump packages.

CVSS Score:
5.0
