    Package        : tcpdump
    Vulnerability  : infinite loop
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-1279
    "Vade 79" discovered that the BGP dissector in tcpdump, a powerful
    tool for network monitoring and data acquisition, does not properly
    handle RT_ROUTING_INFO.  A specially crafted BGP packet can cause a
    denial of service via an infinite loop.
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.2-2.9.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.3-4.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.3-4.
    We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump package.
