Title: tcpdump: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201502-05)
Date: February 07, 2015
Multiple vulnerabilities in tcpdump could result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
tcpdump is a tool for capturing and inspecting network traffic.
Vulnerable: < 4.6.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 4.6.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in tcpdump:
- The olsr_print function function contains an integer underflow error
- The geonet_print function function contains multiple integer
underflow errors (CVE-2014-8768)
- The decoder for the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector protocol
contains an out-of-bounds memory access error (CVE-2014-8769)
- The ppp_hdlc function contains a buffer overflow error
A remote attacker may be able to send a specially crafted packet,
possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service
There is no known workaround at this time.
All tcpdump users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/tcpdump-4.6.2-r1"
