    Package: ethereal
    Vulnerability: remotely triggered memory allocation error
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Ethereal versions prior to 0.9.3 were vulnerable to an allocation error
    in the ASN.1 parser. This can be triggered when analyzing traffic using
    the SNMP, LDAP, COPS, or Kerberos protocols in ethereal. This
    vulnerability was announced in the ethereal security advisory
    enpa-sa-00003 and has been given the proposed CVE id of CAN-2002-0353.
    This issue has been corrected in ethereal version 0.8.0-3potato for
    Debian 2.2 (potato).
    
    Additionally, a number of vulnerabilities were discussed in ethereal
    security advisory enpa-sa-00004; the version of ethereal in Debian 2.2
    (potato) is not vulnerable to the issues raised in this later advisory.
    Users of the not-yet-released woody distribution should ensure that they
    are running ethereal 0.9.4-1 or a later version.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your ethereal package immediately.
    
    wget url
    	will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
