EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : tcpdump (EulerOS-SA-2019-2674)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 132209
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.


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the tcpdump package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- tcpdump 4.9.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via crafted packet data. The crash occurs in the EXTRACT_16BITS function, called from the stp_print function for the Spanning Tree Protocol.(CVE-2017-11108)

- tcpdump 4.9.0 has a buffer overflow in the sliplink_print function in print-sl.c.(CVE-2017-11543)

- tcpdump 4.9.0 has a heap-based buffer over-read in the lldp_print function in print-lldp.c, related to util-print.c.(CVE-2017-11541)

- tcpdump 4.9.0 has a heap-based buffer over-read in the pimv1_print function in print-pim.c.(CVE-2017-11542)

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


Update the affected tcpdump packages.
