SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIssues have been discovered in the following protocol dissectors :
- A SIP packet could make Ethereal crash under specific conditions, as described in the following message:
http://www.ethereal.com/lists/ethereal-users/200405/msg0 0018.html (0.10.3).
- The AIM dissector could throw an assertion, causing Ethereal to terminate abnormally (0.10.3).
- It was possible for the SPNEGO dissector to dereference a NULL pointer, causing a crash (0.9.8 to 0.10.3).
- The MMSE dissector was susceptible to a buffer overflow. (0.10.1 to 0.10.3).
All users of Ethereal are strongly encouraged to update to these latest packages.

SolutionUpdate the affected ethereal, ethereal-debuginfo and / or ethereal-gnome packages.
