SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SuSE-SA:2004:002 (tcpdump).
Tcpdump is a well known tool for administrators to analyze network traffic.
There is a bug in the tcpdump code responsible for handling ISAKMP messages. This bug allows remote attackers to destroy a current tcpdump session by tricking the tcpdump program with evil ISAKMP messages to enter an endless loop.
Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
