[slackware-security]  tcpdump (SSA:2007-230-01)

New tcpdump packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, and 12.0 to fix a security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-3798

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/tcpdump-3.9.7-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to libpcap-0.9.7, tcpdump-3.9.7.
  This new version fixes an integer overflow in the BGP dissector which
  could possibly allow remote attackers to crash tcpdump or to execute
  arbitrary code.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-3798
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
