Jan 28, 2004, 21:59 (0 Talkback[s])

Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory


Package name: tcpdump
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:008
Date: January 26th, 2004
Affected versions: 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1, Multi Network Firewall 8.2

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in tcpdump versions prior to 3.8.1 that, if fed a maliciously crafted packet, could be exploited to crash tcpdump or potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running tcpdump. These vulnerabilities include:

An infinite loop and memory consumption processing L2TP packets (CAN-2003-1029).

Infinite loops in processing ISAKMP packets (CAN-2003-0989, CAN-2004-0057).

A segmentation fault caused by a RADIUS attribute with a large length value (CAN-2004-0055).

The updated packages are patched to correct these problem.

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in the gaim instant messenger program by Steffan Esser, versions 0.75 and earlier. Thanks to Jacques A. Vidrine for providing initial patches.

Multiple buffer overflows exist in gaim 0.75 and earlier: When parsing cookies in a Yahoo web connection; YMSG protocol overflows parsing the Yahoo login webpage; a YMSG packet overflow; flaws in the URL parser; and flaws in the HTTP Proxy connect (CAN-2004-006).

A buffer overflow in gaim 0.74 and earlier in the Extract Info Field Function used for MSN and YMSG protocol handlers (CAN-2004-007).
