Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2002-12-12 06:54:48 EST
The BGP dissector in Ethereal 0.9.7 and earlier versions can
go into an infinite loop when trying to process a malformed
message. This problem was discovered by Silvio Cesare.
Malformed packets could cause crashes in the LMP, PPP, and TDS
dissectors in 0.9.7 and earlier versions."
