Debian Security Advisory DSA 920-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : ethereal
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3651
BugTraq ID     : 15794
Debian Bug     : 342911

A buffer overflow has been discovered in ethereal, a commonly used
network traffic analyser that causes a denial of service and may
potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.4-1woody14.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.10.10-2sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

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.
