3. Problem description:

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

In May 2006, Ethereal changed its name to Wireshark.  This update
deprecates the Ethereal packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, and 4
in favor of the supported Wireshark packages.

Several denial of service bugs were found in Ethereal's protocol
dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or stop responding if it
read a malformed packet off the network.  (CVE-2006-3627, CVE-2006-3629,
CVE-2006-3631)

Several buffer overflow bugs were found in Ethereal's ANSI MAP, NCP NMAS,
and NDPStelnet dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or execute
arbitrary code if it read a malformed packet off the network.
(CVE-2006-3630, CVE-2006-3632)

Several format string bugs were found in Ethereal's Checkpoint FW-1, MQ,
XML, and NTP dissectors. It was possible for Ethereal to crash or execute
arbitrary code if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-3628)

Users of Ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages containing
Wireshark version 0.99.2, which is not vulnerable to these issues

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/):

199231 - Replace (EOL) Ethereal with Wireshark
199232 - CVE-2006-3627 Mulitple security issues (CVE-2006-3628 CVE-2006-3629 CVE-2006-3630 CVE-2006-3631 CVE-2006-3632)
