Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-13 09:27:31 UTC
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=tcpdump-workers&m=107325073018070

Jonathan Heusser discovered two security bugs in tcpdump and reported
to the tcpdump-workers mailinglist.  The bugs have now been fixed in
the CVS version. 

This could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code as the 'pcap' user.
