The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
tcpdump was updated to fix three security issues.
These security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2014-8767: Integer underflow in the olsr_print
function in tcpdump 3.9.6 through 4.6.2, when in verbose
mode, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via a crafted length value in an OLSR
frame (bnc#905870 905871).
- CVE-2014-8769: tcpdump 3.8 through 4.6.2 might allowed
remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from
memory or cause a denial of service (packet loss or
segmentation fault) via a crafted Ad hoc On-Demand
Distance Vector (AODV) packet, which triggers an
out-of-bounds memory access (bnc#905871 905872).
- CVE-2014-8768: Multiple Integer underflows in the
geonet_print function in tcpdump 4.5.0 through 4.6.2,
when in verbose mode, allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (segmentation fault and crash) via a
crafted length value in a Geonet frame (bnc#905871).
