(Mandrake Issues Fix) Ethereal DICOM, HTTP, and SMB Dissector Bugs Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1012695
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1012695
CVE Reference:   CAN-2004-1139, CAN-2004-1140, CAN-2004-1141, CAN-2004-1142   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 24 2004
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 0.9.0 through 0.10.7
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Ethereal, affecting the DICOM, HTTP, and SMB protocol dissectors. A remote user can cause the target service to crash or to execute arbitrary code.

The vendor reported an unspecified denial of service flaw in the DICOM dissector in versions 0.10.4 through 0.10.7 [CVE: CAN 2004-1139]. Matthew Bing is credited with discovering this flaw.

It is also reproted that a remote user can send a packet with an invalid RTP timestamp to cause the target Ethereal process to hang and create a large temporary file [CVE: CAN 2004-1140]. The temporary file may consume all available disk space. Versions 0.9.16 through 0.10.7 are affected.

It is also reported that a remote user can cause the HTTP dissector to access previously-freed memory and crash [CVE: CAN 2004-1141]. Versions 0.10.1 through 0.10.7 are affected.

It is also reported that a remote user can send a specially crafted SMB packet to cause the target Ethereal process to hang and consume all available CPU resources [CVE: CAN 2004-1142]. Versions 0.9.0 through 0.10.7 are affected. Brian Caswell is credited with discovering this flaw.

In each of these cases, a remote user can send a specially crafted packet to or via a network monitored by Ethereal to trigger the flaws. A remote user can also create a specially crafted packet trace file that, when played by the target user, will trigger the flaws.

Impact:   A remote user can cause the target service to crash or to execute arbitrary code.
Solution:   Mandrake has released a fix.

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           ethereal
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:152
 Date:                   December 20th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A number of vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal:
 
 - Matthew Bing discovered a bug in DICOM dissection that could make
   Ethereal crash (CAN-2004-1139)
 - An invalid RTP timestamp could make Ethereal hang and create a large
   temporary file, possibly filling available disk space (CAN-2004-1140)
 - The HTTP dissector could access previously-freed memory, causing a
   crash (CAN-2004-1141)
 - Brian Caswell discovered that an improperly formatted SMB packet
   could make Ethereal hang, maximizing CPU utilization (CAN-2004-1142)
 
 Ethereal 0.10.8 was released to correct these problems and is being
 provided.
