Debian DLA-1090-1 : tcpdump security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 102982

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in tcpdump, a command-line network traffic analyzer. These vulnerabilities might result in denial of service (application crash).

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.0-1~deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your tcpdump packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected tcpdump package.
