VuXML IDDescription
2dc764fa-40c0-11dc-aeac-02e0185f8d72FreeBSD -- Buffer overflow in tcpdump(1)

Problem Description:

An un-checked return value in the BGP dissector code can result in an integer overflow. This value is used in subsequent buffer management operations, resulting in a stack based buffer overflow under certain circumstances.

Impact:

By crafting malicious BGP packets, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute code or crash the tcpdump process on the target system. This code would be executed in the context of the user running tcpdump(1). It should be noted that tcpdump(1) requires privileges in order to open live network interfaces.

Workaround:

No workaround is available.

CVE-2007-3798
SA-07:06.tcpdump
9fae0f1f-df82-11d9-b875-0001020eed82tcpdump -- infinite loops in protocol decoding

Problem Description

Several tcpdump protocol decoders contain programming errors which can cause them to go into infinite loops.

Impact

An attacker can inject specially crafted packets into the network which, when processed by tcpdump, could lead to a denial-of-service. After the attack, tcpdump would no longer capture traffic, and would potentially use all available processor time.
