Scientific Linux Security Update : tcpdump on SL7.x x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 102657

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
tcpdump (4.9.0).

Security Fix(es) :

- Multiple out of bounds read and integer overflow vulnerabilities were found in tcpdump affecting the decoding of various protocols. An attacker could create a crafted pcap file or send specially crafted packets to the network segment where tcpdump is running in live capture mode (without -w) which could cause it to display incorrect data, crash or enter an infinite loop.
