Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in tcpdump, a tool for inspecting network traffic. If a vulnerable version of tcpdump attempted to examine a maliciously constructed packet, a number of buffer overflows could be exploited to crash tcpdump, or potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the tcpdump process.

  • CAN-2003-1029 - infinite loop and memory consumption in processing L2TP packets
  • CAN-2003-0989, CAN-2004-0057 - infinite loops in processing ISAKMP packets

  • CAN-2004-0055 - segmentation fault caused by a RADIUS attribute with a large length value
