Description Fabio Olive Leite 2007-03-15 22:03:18 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #232347 +++

A potential denial of service flaw due to a single byte overflow was found in
the way tcpdump processes 802.11 packets:

The upstream patch is here:

From inspecting our packages it seems that the initial, incorrect test isn't
even present, which still leaves our packages vulnerable to this flaw.

This flaw also affects RHEL 3 and RHEL4.  The code in question is not present in
RHEL 2.1

Can we get this into 3.9?
