Insight

Insight

Timo Sirainen discovered several vulnerabilities in ethereal, a network traffic analyzer. These include one-byte buffer overflows in the AIM, GIOP Gryphon, OSPF, PPTP, Quake, Quake2, Quake3, Rsync, SMB, SMPP, and TSP dissectors, and integer overflows in the Mount and PPP dissectors. For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.4-1woody4. The old stable distribution (potato) does not appear to contain these vulnerabilities. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems are fixed in version 0.9.12-1. We recommend that you update your ethereal package.
