A vulnerability was discovered by Andrew Griffiths and iDEFENSE Labs
in the tcpdump program. By sending a specially crafted network packet,
an attacker is able to to cause tcpdump to enter an infinite loop. In
addition, the tcpdump developers found a potential infinite loop when
tcpdump parses malformed BGP packets. A buffer overflow was also
discovered that can be exploited with certain malformed NFS packets.
Update the affected libpcap0, libpcap0-devel and / or tcpdump
