    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0176 
    
    Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in ethereal, a
    network traffic analyzer.  These vulnerabilites are described in the
    ethereal advisory "enpa-sa-00013".  Of these, only some parts of
    CAN-2004-0176 affect the version of ethereal in Debian woody.
    CAN-2004-0367 and CAN-2004-0365 are not applicable to this version.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
    fixed in version 0.9.4-1woody7.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.10.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you update your ethereal package.
