CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : ethereal
SUMMARY   : Buffer overflow allows remote exploit
DATE      : 2000-11-23 14:27:00
ID        : CLSA-2000:342
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 5.0, 5.1

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
Ethereal has some buffer overflows in some protocol decoders (mainly
in AFS, but Netbios, ntp, icq, ppp and resolver also have possible
buffer overflow problems). An attacker could send crafted packets to
a network that is being monitored by ethereal to exploit these
overflows.
Version 0.8.14 fixes these problems.


SOLUTION
All ethereal users should upgrade immediately.
