Fedora Core 1 : tcpdump-3.7.2-8.fc1.2 (2004-120)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic.

Tcpdump v3.8.1 and earlier versions contained multiple flaws in the
packet display functions for the ISAKMP protocol. Upon receiving
specially crafted ISAKMP packets, TCPDUMP would try to read beyond the
end of the packet capture buffer and subsequently crash.

Users of tcpdump are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to
these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
