Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-01-18 16:19:04 EST
Radek,

I'm thinking we should just wait for the new ethereal version, then re-roll the
RHEL errata packages.
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-01-18 16:19:44 EST
This issue is also going to affect RHEL2.1
Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2005-01-19 03:18:36 EST
We should ship ethereal labeled as dangerous software and only for skilled
users. Of course waiting for 0.10.9 makes sence .. 
Comment 4 Radek Vokal 2005-01-25 08:42:52 EST
Ethereal updated to version 0.10.9
Comment 5 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2005-02-02 07:07:38 EST
