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
has assigned the names CVE-2005-3241, CVE-2005-3242, CVE-2005-3243,
CVE-2005-3244, CVE-2005-3245, CVE-2005-3246, CVE-2005-3247, CVE-2005-3248,
CVE-2005-3249, and CVE-2005-3184 to these issues.

Users of ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
version 0.10.13 and are 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:
