Package        : ethereal
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2006-1932 CVE-2006-1933 CVE-2006-1934 CVE-2006-1935
                 CVE-2006-1936 CVE-2006-1937 CVE-2006-1938 CVE-2006-1939
BugTraq ID     : 17682

Gerald Combs reported several vulnerabilities in ethereal, a popular
network traffic analyser.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:


    The OID printing routine is susceptible to an off-by-one error.


     The UMA and BER dissectors could go into an infinite loop.


    The Network Instruments file code could overrun a buffer.


    The COPS dissector contains a potential buffer overflow.


    The telnet dissector contains a buffer overflow.


    Bugs in the SRVLOC and AIM dissector, and in the statistics
    counter could crash ethereal.


    Null pointer dereferences in the SMB PIPE dissector and when
    reading a malformed Sniffer capture could crash ethereal.


    Null pointer dereferences in the ASN.1, GSM SMS, RPC and
    ASN.1-based dissector and an invalid display filter could crash


    The SNDCP dissector could cause an unintended abortion.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.4-1woody15.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.
