Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200404-03 (Tcpdump Vulnerabilities in ISAKMP Parsing)

There are two specific vulnerabilities in tcpdump, outlined in [ reference
1 ]. In the first scenario, an attacker may send a specially crafted ISAKMP
Delete packet which causes tcpdump to read past the end of its buffer. In
the second scenario, an attacker may send an ISAKMP packet with the wrong
payload length, again causing tcpdump to read past the end of a buffer.

Impact :

Remote attackers could potentially cause tcpdump to crash or execute
arbitrary code as the
