OpenPKG Security Advisory                            The OpenPKG Project

Package:             tcpdump
Vulnerability:       denial of service
OpenPKG Specific:    no

Affected Releases:   Affected Packages:          Corrected Packages:
OpenPKG CURRENT      <= tcpdump-3.8.1-20040207   >= tcpdump-3.8.2-20040330
OpenPKG 2.0          <= tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.0      >= tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.1

Dependent Packages:  none

  According to a security advisory published by Rapid7 [0], two
  vulnerabilities exists in the ISAKMP packet display functions of
  tcpdump [1]. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project
  has reviewed both problems. CAN-2004-0183 [2] identifies an overflow
  when displaying ISAKMP delete payloads with large number of SPIs,
  while CAN-2004-0184 [3] identifies an integer underflow when
  displaying ISAKMP identification payload. These vulnerabilities
  appear only when verbose packet display is enabled by running tcpdump
  with the -v option.

  Please check whether you are affected by running "/bin/rpm
  -q tcpdump". If you have the "tcpdump" package installed and its
  version is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately
  upgrade it (see Solution). [4][5]

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [6][7], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [8][9] or a mirror
  location, verify its integrity [10], build a corresponding binary RPM
  from it [4] and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the
  binary RPM [5]. For the most current release OpenPKG 2.0, perform the
  following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for
  other releases adjust accordingly).

  $ ftp
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/2.0/UPD
  ftp> get tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.1.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ /bin/rpm -v --checksig tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.1.src.rpm
  $ /bin/rpm --rebuild tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.1.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # /bin/rpm -Fvh /RPM/PKG/tcpdump-3.8.1-2.0.1.*.rpm
