RHEL 2.1 / 3 : tcpdump (RHSA-2004:219)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 12498
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 Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated tcpdump, libpcap, and arpwatch packages fix vulnerabilities in ISAKMP parsing.

Tcpdump is a command-line tool for monitoring network traffic.

Tcpdump v3.8.1 and earlier versions contained multiple flaws in the packet display functions for the ISAKMP protocol. Upon receiving specially crafted ISAKMP packets, TCPDUMP would try to read beyond the end of the packet capture buffer and subsequently crash.

Users of tcpdump are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain backported security patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Update the affected arpwatch, libpcap and / or tcpdump packages.
