Description Josh Bressers 2004-07-07 10:21:59 EDT
A number of issues hve been discovered in Ethereal.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2004-07-07 10:22:19 EDT
Update severity to security.
Comment 3 Josh Bressers 2004-07-07 10:27:14 EDT
Here's my analysis of the bugs fixed.

#  The iSNS dissector could make Ethereal abort in some cases. (0.10.3
- 0.10.4)

This is an integer overflow flaw.  It's most likely just a DOS, I see
no evidence that it could run arbitrary code, but I'm not going to
rule it out.

# SMB SID snooping could crash if there was no policy name for a
handle. (0.9.15 - 0.10.4)

This is a null pointer flaw.  It's a DOS.

# The SNMP dissector could crash due to a malformed or missing
community string. (0.8.15 - 0.10.4)

This is an out of bounds memory read issue.
