Package        : wireshark
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3390 CVE-2007-3392 CVE-2007-3393

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Wireshark
network traffic analyzer, which may lead to denial of service. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-3390

    Off-by-one overflows were discovered in the iSeries dissector.

CVE-2007-3392

    The MMS and SSL dissectors could be forced into an infinite loop.

CVE-2007-3393

    An off-by-one overflow was discovered in the DHCP/BOOTP dissector.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) is not affected by these problems.
(In Sarge Wireshark used to be called Ethereal).

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed
in version 0.99.4-5.etch.0. Packages for the big endian MIPS architecture
are not yet available. They will be provided later.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.99.6pre1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your Wireshark 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.
