Package : ethereal
Vulnerability : several
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-3628 CVE-2006-3629 CVE-2006-3630 CVE-2006-3631 CVE-2006-3632
Debian Bug : 373913 375694

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:

CVE-2006-3628

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

CVE-2006-3629

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

CVE-2006-3630

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

CVE-2006-3631

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

CVE-2006-3632

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.
