Description Mark J. Cox 2005-07-26 03:36:56 EDT
Gerarld Combs notified us of a number of flaws fixed in Ethereal 0.10.12, due
out on 20050726 or 20050727.  The majority of these can cause ethereal to crash
or get stuck in a loop (impact=)

However there are two issues that could have a higher impact, but these will
need investigation to determine the consequences:

  The SMB dissector could overflow a buffer or exhaust system memory.
  Versions affected: 0.9.0 to 0.10.11
  Fixed in: 14501, 14515, 14526

  Several dissectors were susceptible to a format string overflow.
  Versions affected: 0.9.4 to 0.10.11
  Fixed in: 14713


List of issues attached.  Marking bug embargoed until Ethereal release.

Affects RHEL4, RHEL3, RHEL2.1
