(Mandrake Issues Fix) Ethereal Bugs in the iSNS, SMB, and SNMP Dissectors Let Remote Users Crash Ethereal or Possibly Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1010682
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1010682
CVE Reference:   CVE-2004-0633, CVE-2004-0634, CVE-2004-0635   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 13 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): 0.8.15 up to and including 0.10.4
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were was reported in Ethereal in the iSNS, SMB, and SNMP dissectors. A remote user can cause the Ethereal process to crash and may be able to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vendor reported that a remote user can send a specially crafted packet to the target system or via a network that is monitored by the target system to trigger one of several flaws. A remote user can also create a specially crafted trace file that, when played by the target user, will have the same effect.

A remote user can cause the iSNS dissector to cause Ethereal to abort in some cases (affecting versions 0.10.3 - 0.10.4), the report said [CVE: CVE-2004-0633].

It is also reported that the Ethereal process performing SMB SID snooping may crash if there is no policy name for a handle (affecting versions 0.9.15 - 0.10.4) [CVE: CVE-2004-0634].

It is also reported that a remote user can send an SNMP packet with a specially crafted or missing community string to cause the process to crash (affecting versions 0.8.15 - 0.10.4) [CVE: CVE-2004-0635].

Impact:   A remote user can cause the Ethereal process to crash.

A remote user may be able to execute arbitrary code on the target system with the privileges of the Ethereal process.

Solution:   Mandrake has released a fix.

 Package name:           ethereal
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2004:067
 Date:                   July 9th, 2004

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 9.2
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Three vulnerabilities were discovered in Ethereal versions prior to
 0.10.5 in the iSNS, SMB SID, and SNMP dissectors.  It may be possible
 to make Ethereal crash or run arbitrary code by injecting a
 purposefully malformed packet into the wire or by convincing someone to
 read a malformed packet trace file.
 
 These vulnerabilities have been corrected in Ethereal 0.10.5.
