Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in tcpdump, a command-line network traffic analyzer. These security vulnerabilities might result in denial of service or, potentially, execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 8 β€˜Jessie’, these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.3-1~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
