Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:008 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: tcpdump security update 2004-01-07 05:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-07 10:25:57 UTC
tcpdump 3.8 has fixes for a vulnerability in the ISAKMP printer. These
were found by a code review by George Bakos.  We believe that one
buffer overflow was most likely exploitable, and the other may depend
heavily on a lot of other details. We know of no known exploit at this

These issues will be publically disclosed on January 14th.
