    Summary:

    Details:
    
    Multiple security issues were discovered in tcpdump. A remote attacker

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:

    This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
    fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
