Trustix Secure Linux Advisories: tcpdump, libpcap, apache

Mar 30, 2004, 21:59 (0 Talkback[s])
Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2004-0015

Package name: tcpdump, libpcap
Summary: New upstream
Date: 2004-03-30
Affected versions: Trustix 1.5 2.0 2.1


Package description:
Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic. Tcpdump can capture and display the packet headers on a particular network interface or on all interfaces. Tcpdump can display all of the packet headers, or just the ones that match particular criteria.

Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network monitoring. Libpcap can provide network statistics collection, security monitoring and network debugging. Since almost every system vendor provides a different interface for packet capture, the libpcap authors created this system-independent API to ease in porting and to alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet capture modules in each application.Install libpcap if you need to do low-level network traffic monitoring on your network

Problem description:
The new upstream version of tcpdump fixes several bugs, some security related. Amongst others: CAN-2004-0183 and CAN-2004-0184

Action:
We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded. Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this package, you may want to remove it from your system.
