Fedora Core 6 : tcpdump-3.9.4-11.fc6 (2007-654)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25839
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
Integer overflow in print-bgp.c in the BGP dissector in tcpdump 3.9.6 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted TLVs in a BGP packet, related to an unchecked return value.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
