tcpdump 'geonet_print()' Function Denial of Service Vulnerability

tcpdump is prone to a remote denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data.



An attacker can leverage this issue to crash the affected application, denying service to legitimate users.



tcpdump versions 4.5.0 through 4.6.2 are vulnerable.
