tcpdump 'lldp_print()' Function Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

tcpdump is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause a denial-of-service condition.

tcpdump 4.9.0 is vulnerable; other versions may also be vulnerable.
