    Package: tcpdump
    Vulnerability: remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    
    During internal source code auditing by FreeBSD several buffer overflows
    were found which allow an attacker to make tcpdump crash by sending
    carefully crafted packets to a network that is being monitored with
    tcpdump.
    
    This has been fixed in version 3.4a6-4.2.
    
    wget url

    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
