Package : ethereal
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3651
BugTraq ID : 15794
Debian Bug : 342911

A buffer overflow has been discovered in ethereal, a commonly used
network traffic analyser that causes a denial of service and may
potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.4-1woody14.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
