Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0084

A buffer overflow has been detected in the X11 dissector of ethereal,
a commonly used network traffic analyser.  A remote attacker may be
able to overflow a buffer using a specially crafted IP packet.  More
problems have been discovered which don't apply to the version in
