Debian Security Advisory - memory allocation error in ethereal
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Debian Security Advisory security@debian.org 
http://www.debian.org/security/ Michael Stone 
June 1, 2002 
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 


Package: ethereal 
Vulnerability: remotely triggered memory allocation error 
Debian-specific: no 


Ethereal versions prior to 0.9.3 were vulnerable to an allocation error 
in the ASN.1 parser. This can be triggered when analyzing traffic using 
the SNMP, LDAP, COPS, or Kerberos protocols in ethereal. This 
vulnerability was announced in the ethereal security advisory 
enpa-sa-00003 and has been given the proposed CVE id of CAN-2002-0353. 
This issue has been corrected in ethereal version 0.8.0-3potato for 
Debian 2.2 (potato). 


Additionally, a number of vulnerabilities were discussed in ethereal 
security advisory enpa-sa-00004; the version of ethereal in Debian 2.2 
(potato) is not vulnerable to the issues raised in this later advisory. 
Users of the not-yet-released woody distribution should ensure that they 
are running ethereal 0.9.4-1 or a later version. 


We recommend you upgrade your ethereal package immediately. 


wget url 
        will fetch the file for you 
dpkg -i file.deb 
        will install the referenced file. 


You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the 
footer to the proper configuration.
