Problem description

Off-by-one buffer overflow in the parse_elements function in the
802.11 printer code (print-802_11.c) for tcpdump 3.9.5 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a
crafted 802.11 frame.

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
