Problem description

A number of serious issues have been discovered in versions of Ethereal prior to 0.10.2. Stefan Esser discovered thirteen buffer overflows in the NetFlow, IGAP, EIGRP, PGM, IrDA, BGP, ISUP, and TCAP dissectors. Jonathan Heusser discovered that a carefully-crafted RADIUS packet could cause Ethereal to crash. It was also found that a zero-length Presentation protocol selector could make Ethereal crash. Finally, a corrupt color filter file could cause a segmentation fault. It is possible, through the exploitation of some of these vulnerabilities, to cause Ethereal to crash or run arbitrary code by injecting a malicious, malformed packet onto the wire, by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file, or by creating a malformed color filter file. The updated packages bring Ethereal to version 0.10.3 which is not vulnerable to these issues.
