Description David Binderman 2004-12-18 05:56:12 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package ethereal-0.10.8-1 from 
Redhat Fedora development tree.

The compiler said

packet-t38.c(236): warning #175: subscript out of range

The source code is

        p_conv_data->method[MAX_T38_SETUP_METHOD_SIZE] = '\0';


        p_conv_data->method[MAX_T38_SETUP_METHOD_SIZE - 1] = '\0';

might be better code.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks.  The proposed change has been checked in, and will be in the
next Ethereal release.  After looking through the code, it appears
that this is not a security risk.  The only time t38_add_address() is
called, "SDP" is passed to the setup_method argument, which means that
"p_conv_data->method" is properly terminated.  The errant NULL byte is
immediately overwritten in line 237:

        p_conv_data->frame_number = setup_frame_number;
