Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

An Ethreal Security Advisories reports :

Issues have been discovered in the following protocol dissectors :

- Matthew Bing discovered a bug in DICOM dissection that could make
Ethereal crash.

- An invalid RTP timestamp could make Ethereal hang and create a large
temporary file, possibly filling available disk space.

- The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a
crash.

- Brian Caswell discovered that an improperly formatted SMB packet
could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU utilization.

Impact: It may be possible to make Ethereal crash or run arbitrary
code by injecting a purposefully malformed packet onto the wire or by
convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
