 _______________________________________________________________________

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           ethereal
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:152
 Date:                   December 20th, 2004

 Affected versions:      10.0, 10.1

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal:

 - Matthew Bing discovered a bug in DICOM dissection that could make
   Ethereal crash (CAN-2004-1139)
 - An invalid RTP timestamp could make Ethereal hang and create a large
   temporary file, possibly filling available disk space (CAN-2004-1140)
 - The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a
   crash (CAN-2004-1141)
 - Brian Caswell discovered that an improperly formatted SMB packet
   could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU utilization (CAN-2004-1142)

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