3. Problem description:

The ethereal package is a program for monitoring network traffic.

A number of security flaws have been discovered in Ethereal. On a system
where Ethereal is running, a remote attacker could send malicious packets
to trigger these flaws and cause Ethereal to crash or potentially execute
arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-2360, CAN-2005-2361,
CAN-2005-2362, CAN-2005-2363, CAN-2005-2364, CAN-2005-2365, CAN-2005-2366,
and CAN-2005-2367 to these issues.

Users of ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
version 0.10.12 which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Note: To reduce the risk of future vulnerabilities in Ethereal, the
ethereal and tethereal programs in this update have been compiled as
Position Independant Executables (PIE) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and
4.  In addition FORTIFY_SOURCE has been enabled for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 packages to provide compile time and runtime buffer checks.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

164243 - CAN-2005-2360 Multiple ethereal flaws (CAN-2005-2361 CAN-2005-2362 CAN-2005-2363 CAN-2005-2364 CAN-2005-2365 CAN-2005-2366 CAN-2005-2367)
