The vulnerability is caused due to a format string error within the PN-DCP dissector when processing station names containing format string specifiers. This can be exploited to cause a crash and potentially execute arbitrary code via specially crafted packets captured off the wire or loaded via a capture file. --------8<--------- : http://secunia.com/advisories/34542 I couldn't find any related CVE request, can you assign one? Thanks, -- Pinar Yanardag http://pinguar.org _____________________ Pardus Security Team http://security.pardus.org.tr
