Debian Security Advisory DSA 718-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

Package        : ethereal
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0739

A buffer overflow has been detected in the IAPP dissector of Ethereal,
a commonly used network traffic analyser.  A remote attacker may be
able to overflow a buffer using a specially crafted packet.  More
problems have been discovered which don't apply to the version in
woody but are fixed in sid as well.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.4-1woody12.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.10.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
