3. Problem description:

The ethereal package is a program for monitoring network traffic.

A number of security flaws have been discovered in Ethereal. On a system where Ethereal is running, a remote attacker could send malicious packets to trigger these flaws and cause Ethereal to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-1456, CAN-2005-1457, CAN-2005-1458, CAN-2005-1459, CAN-2005-1460, CAN-2005-1461, CAN-2005-1462, CAN-2005-1463, CAN-2005-1464, CAN-2005-1465, CAN-2005-1466, CAN-2005-1467, CAN-2005-1468, CAN-2005-1469, and CAN-2005-1470 to these issues.

Users of ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain version 0.10.11 which is not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command:

up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system:
