- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : tcpdump
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-3798

It was discovered that an integer overflow in the BGP dissector of tcpdump,
a powerful tool for network monitoring and data acquisition, may lead to
the execution of arbitrary code.

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.8.3-5sarge3.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.9.5-2etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.9.5-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump package.
