1. Summary:

New Wireshark packages that fix various security vulnerabilities and
functionality bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Several denial of service bugs were found in Wireshark's HTTP, iSeries, DCP
ETSI, SSL, MMS, DHCP and BOOTP protocol dissectors. It was possible for
Wireshark to crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the
network. (CVE-2007-3389, CVE-2007-3390, CVE-2007-3391, CVE-2007-3392,
CVE-2007-3393)

Wireshark would interpret certain completion codes incorrectly when
dissecting IPMI traffic. Additionally, IPMI 2.0 packets would be reported
as malformed IPMI traffic.

Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages containing
Wireshark version 0.99.6, which correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

245796 - CVE-2007-3389 Wireshark crashes when inspecting HTTP traffic
245797 - CVE-2007-3391 Wireshark loops infinitely when inspecting DCP ETSI traffic
245798 - CVE-2007-3392 Wireshark loops infinitely when inspecting SSL traffic
246221 - CVE-2007-3393 Wireshark corrupts the stack when inspecting BOOTP traffic
246225 - CVE-2007-3390 Wireshark crashes when inspecting iSeries traffic
