New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description

Updated tcpdump package fixes security vulnerabilities :

The Tcpdump program could crash when processing a malformed OLSR payload when the verbose output flag was set (CVE-2014-8767).

The application decoder for the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocol in Tcpdump fails to perform input validation and performs unsafe out-of-bound accesses. The application will usually not crash, but perform out-of-bounds accesses and output/leak larger amounts of invalid data, which might lead to dropped packets. It is unknown if a payload exists that might trigger segfaults (CVE-2014-8769).

It was discovered that tcpdump incorrectly handled printing PPP packets. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause tcpdump to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2014-9140).

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in tcpdump. These vulnerabilities might result in denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2015-0261, CVE-2015-2153, CVE-2015-2154, CVE-2015-2155).

Solution

Update the affected tcpdump package.
