    Several denial of service vulnerabilities were discovered in ethereal,
    a network traffic analyzer.  These vulnerabilites are described in the
    ethereal advisory "enpa-sa-00015".  Of these, only one (CAN-2004-0635)
    affects the version of ethereal in Debian woody.  This vulnerability
    could be exploited by a remote attacker to crash ethereal with an
