Fedora 13 : dsniff-2.4-0.9.b1.fc13 / libnids-1.24-1.fc13 (2010-5562)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 47403


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


libnids 1.24 (Mar 14 2010): - fixed another remotely triggerable NULL dereference in ip_fragment.c - unofficial patch that enables tracking of already established TCP connections - missing reset of some tcp_* variables upon nids_exit - correct calculation of radiotap header - compilation warning fixes with newer gcc - use pcap_get_selectable_fd() instead of pcap_fileno() dsniff-2.4-0.9.b1: - Rebuild against libnids 1.24

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.


Update the affected dsniff and / or libnids packages.
