Description

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in tcpdump versions prior to 3.8.1 that, if fed a maliciously crafted packet, could be exploited to crash tcpdump. These vulnerabilities include :

Remote attackers can cause a denial of service (crash) via ISAKMP packets containing a Delete payload with a large number of SPI's, which causes an out-of-bounds read. (CVE-2004-1083)

Integer underflow in the isakmp_id_print allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an ISAKMP packet with an Identification payload with a length that becomes less than 8 during byte order conversion, which causes an out-of-bounds read. (CVE-2004-0184)

The updated packages are patched to correct these problems.
