Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Ethereal, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to various types of errors including boundary errors, an off-by-one error, an infinite loop error, and several unspecified errors in a multitude of protocol dissectors.

Successful exploitation causes Ethereal to stop responding, consume a large amount of system resources, crash, or execute arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities affect versions 0.8.5 through 0.10.14.


Solution:
Upgrade to version 0.99.0
