 * fix:                                                           *
 *  this appears to have been fixed in the alpha 3.9.x / CVS      *
 *  versions.  although i found no direct mention of the issue    *
 *  itself being resolved, the code has been changed in a way to  *
 *  not allow this to happen.                                     *
 *                                                                *
 * Tcpdump is a program that allows you to dump the traffic on a  *
 * network. It can be used to print out the headers of packets on *
 * a network interface that matches a given expression. You can   *
 * use this tool to track down network problems, to detect "ping  *
 * attacks" or to monitor the network activities.                 *
 *                                                                *
 * tcpdump(v3.8.3 and earlier versions) contains a remote denial  *
 * of service vulnerability in the form of a single (LDP) packet  *
 * causing an infinite loop.                                      *
 *                                                                *
 * LDP is UDP(/TCP), so no LDP service has to actually be running *
 * to abuse this issue, spoofed or not spoofed.  depending on the *
 * path the packet takes spoofed packets may be dropped(dropped   *
 * at your router most likely), in such a case non-spoofed        *
 * packets have the same effect, they just show your ip.          *
 *                                                                *
 * some versions of tcpdump(depending on the platform/OS) need no *
 * special command-line arguments to allow this to happen,        *
 * however most need the "-v" argument.                           *
