Description Josh Bressers 2007-03-14 17:10:56 EDT
A potential denial of service flaw due to a single byte overflow was found in
the way tcpdump processes 802.11 packets:

The upstream patch is here:

From inspecting our packages it seems that the initial, incorrect test isn't
even present, which still leaves our packages vulnerable to this flaw.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2007-03-14 17:12:03 EDT
This flaw also affects RHEL 3 and RHEL4.  The code in question is not present in
RHEL 2.1
