Package name: ethereal
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:152
Date: December 20th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal:

- Matthew Bing discovered a bug in DICOM dissection that could make Ethereal crash (CAN-2004-1139)
- An invalid RTP timestamp could make Ethereal hang and create a large temporary file, possibly filling available disk space (CAN-2004-1140)
- The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a crash (CAN-2004-1141)
- Brian Caswell discovered that an improperly formatted SMB packet could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU utilization (CAN-2004-1142)

Ethereal 0.10.8 was released to correct these problems and is being provided.
