    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0635
    
    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
    invalid SNMP packet.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
    fixed in version 0.9.4-1woody8.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.10.5-1.
    
    We recommend that you update your ethereal package.
