[SECURITY] Fedora Core 1 Update: ethereal-0.10.5-0.1.1



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-219
2004-07-14
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 1
Name        : ethereal
Version     : 0.10.5
Release     : 0.1.1
Summary     : Network traffic analyzer
Description :
Ethereal is a network traffic analyzer for Unix-ish operating systems.

This package lays base for libpcap, a packet capture and filtering
library, contains command-line utilities, contains plugins and
documentation for ethereal. A graphical user interface is packaged
separately to GTK+ package.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Issues have been discovered in the following protocol dissectors:

* The iSNS dissector could make Ethereal abort in some cases. (0.10.3 - 0.10.4) CAN-2004-0633
* SMB SID snooping could crash if there was no policy name for a handle. (0.9.15 - 0.10.4) CAN-2004-0634
* The SNMP dissector could crash due to a malformed or missing community string. (0.8.15 - 0.10.4) CAN-2004-0635


Impact:

It may be possible to make Ethereal crash or run arbitrary code by injecting a purposefully malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

Resolution:

Upgrade to 0.10.5.

If you are running a version prior to 0.10.5 and you cannot upgrade, you can disable all of the protocol dissectors listed above by selecting Analyze->Enabled Protocols... and deselecting them from the list. For SMB, you can alternatively disable SID snooping in the SMB protocol preferences. However, it is strongly recommended that you upgrade to 0.10.5.
