Package : ethereal
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CAN-2004-0176

Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in ethereal, a network traffic analyzer. These vulnerabilites are described in the ethereal advisory "enpa-sa-00013". Of these, only some parts of CAN-2004-0176 affect the version of ethereal in Debian woody. CAN-2004-0367 and CAN-2004-0365 are not applicable to this version.

For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.4-1woody7.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 0.10.3-1.

We recommend that you update your ethereal package.
