The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Off-by-one buffer overflow in the parse_elements function in the
802.11 printer code (print-802_11.c) for tcpdump 3.9.5 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a
crafted 802.11 frame. NOTE: this was originally referred to as
heap-based, but it might be stack-based.
Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
Update the affected tcpdump package.
