    It was discovered that an integer overflow in the BGP dissector of tcpdump,
    a powerful tool for network monitoring and data acquisition, may lead to
    the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.3-5sarge3.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.9.5-2etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.9.5-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump package.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
