F5 Networks BIG-IP : tcpdump vulnerabilities (K77384526)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 104308
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

CVE-2016-7922

The AH parser in tcpdump before 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in print-ah.c:ah_print().

CVE-2016-7923 The ARP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in print-arp.c:arp_print().

CVE-2016-7924 The ATM parser in tcpdump before 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in print-atm.c:oam_print().

CVE-2016-7925 The compressed SLIP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in print-sl.c:sl_if_print().

CVE-2016-7927 The IEEE 802.11 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in print-802_11.c:ieee802_11_radio_print().

Impact

An attacker can gain access to sensitive information. An attacker can also cause a denial of service (DoS) by way of a crafted pcap file or by sending specially crafted packets to the network segment where tcpdump is actively capturing network traffic. The tcpdump program does not use the protocol decoding subsystem, and is, therefore, not affected by these vulnerabilities when using the -w option to write raw packets to a pcap file for offline examination.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K77384526.
