Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:056
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : tcpdump
Date : March 8, 2007
Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Off-by-one buffer overflow in the parse_elements function in the 802.11
printer code (print-802_11.c) for tcpdump 3.9.5 and earlier allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted
802.11 frame. NOTE: this was originally referred to as heap-based, but
it might be stack-based.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
