    Package        : ethereal
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0739
    A buffer overflow has been detected in the IAPP dissector of Ethereal,
    a commonly used network traffic analyser.  A remote attacker may be
    able to overflow a buffer using a specially crafted packet.  More
    problems have been discovered which don't apply to the version in
    woody but are fixed in sid as well.
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.9.4-1woody12.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.10.10-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
