EnGarde Secure Linux is an enterprise class Linux platform engineered
to enable corporations to quickly and cost-effectively build a complete
and secure Internet presence while preventing Internet threats.

OVERVIEW
- --------
Several buffer overflows were recently discovered in tcpdump, a program
used for inspecting network traffic. By sending specially constructed
packets across the wire a malicious remote attacker could cause tcpdump
to crash or potentially run arbitrary code as the user under which
tcpdump was being run.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the following names to these issues:

CAN-2004-0057 -- The rawprint function in the ISAKMP decoding
routines (print-isakmp.c) for tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault)
via malformed ISAKMP packets that cause invalid "len" or "loc"
values to be used in a loop, a different vulnerability than
CAN-2003-0989.

CAN-2003-0989 -- tcpdump before 3.8.1 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via certain ISAKMP
packets, a different vulnerability than CAN-2004-0057.

CAN-2003-1029 -- The L2TP protocol parser in tcpdump 3.8.1 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop
and memory consumption) via a packet with invalid data to UDP port
1701, which causes l2tp_avp_print to use a bad length value when
calling print_octets.

EnGarde Secure Community v1.0.1
EnGarde Secure Community 2
