Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: tcpdump
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:101
Date: June 15th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, 10.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A Denial of Service vulnerability was found in tcpdump during the processing of certain network packages. Because of this flaw, it was possible for an attacker to inject a carefully crafted packet onto the network which would crash a running tcpdump session.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem. This problem does not affect at least tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier.
