Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: ethereal
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:067
Date: July 9th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Three vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal versions prior to 0.10.5 in the iSNS, SMB SID, and SNMP dissectors. It may be possible to make Ethereal crash or run arbitrary code by injecting a purposefully malformed packet into the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

These vulnerabilities have been corrected in Ethereal 0.10.5.
