    Details:
    
    USN-4252-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in tcpdump. This update provides
    the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.
    
    Original advisory details:

     could use these issues to cause tcpdump to crash, resulting in a denial of
     service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
      tcpdump                         4.9.3-0ubuntu0.14.04.1+esm1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
      tcpdump                         4.9.3-0ubuntu0.12.04.1
    
    This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
    fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
    changes.
