Synopsis

The remote AIX host is missing a security patch.

Description

http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-14467 https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-14467 The BGP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-bgp.c:bgp_capabilities_print() (BGP_CAPCODE_MP). The VRRP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-vrrp.c:vrrp_print(). The LMP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-lmp.c:lmp_print_data_link_subobjs(). The Babel parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-babel.c:babel_print_v2(). tcpdump before 4.9.3 mishandles the printing of SMB data (issue 2 of 2). The LDP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-ldp.c:ldp_tlv_print(). tcpdump before 4.9.3 mishandles the printing of SMB data (issue 1 of 2).
Tcpdump is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the lmp_print_data_link_subobjs function in print-lmp.c.
By sending specially-crafted data, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the application to crash. The Rx parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-rx.c:rx_cache_find() and rx_cache_insert(). The IKEv1 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-isakmp.c:ikev1_n_print(). The FRF.16 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-fr.c:mfr_print(). The BGP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-bgp.c:bgp_capabilities_print() (BGP_CAPCODE_RESTART). The ICMP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-icmp.c:icmp_print(). The OSPFv3 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-ospf6.c:ospf6_print_lshdr(). The RSVP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-rsvp.c:rsvp_obj_print(). The SMB parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has buffer over-reads in print-smb.c:print_trans() for \MAILSLOT\BROWSE and \PIPE\LANMAN. The SMB parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has stack exhaustion in smbutil.c:smb_fdata() via recursion. The BGP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-bgp.c:bgp_attr_print() (MP_REACH_NLRI). lmp_print_data_link_subobjs() in print-lmp.c in tcpdump before 4.9.3 lacks certain bounds checks. The command-line argument parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer overflow in tcpdump.c:get_next_file(). The HNCP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-hncp.c:print_prefix(). The DCCP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-dccp.c:dccp_print_option(). The IEEE 802.11 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-802_11.c for the Mesh Flags subfield. The BGP parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 allows stack consumption in print-bgp.c:bgp_attr_print() because of unlimited recursion. The ICMPv6 parser in tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a buffer over-read in print-icmp6.c. tcpdump before 4.9.3 has a heap-based buffer over-read related to aoe_print in print-aoe.c and lookup_emem in addrtoname.c.
