Description

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal :

  • Matthew Bing discovered a bug in DICOM dissection that could make Ethereal crash (CVE-2004-1139)

  • An invalid RTP timestamp could make Ethereal hang and create a large temporary file, possibly filling available disk space (CVE-2004-1140)

  • The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a crash (CVE-2004-1141)

  • Brian Caswell discovered that an improperly formatted SMB packet could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU utilization (CVE-2004-1142)

Ethereal 0.10.8 was released to correct these problems and is being provided.
