Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-03-12 08:50:37 EST
Stefan Esser reported that Ethereal versions 0.10.1 and earlier
contain stack overflows in the IGRP, PGM, Metflow, ISUP, TCAP, or IGAP
dissectors.  On a system where Ethereal is being run a remote attacker
could send malicious packets that could cause Ethereal to crash or
execute arbitrary code.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0176 to this issue.

Treating as embargoed.

        CAN-2004-0176 Affects: 2.1AS 2.1ES 2.1WS 2.1AW
        CAN-2004-0176 Affects: 3AS 3ES 3WS
