Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-03 01:42:48 UTC
CVE-2008-1070 (
  The SCTP dissector in Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) 0.99.5 through 0.99.7
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a malformed

CVE-2008-1071 (
  The SNMP dissector in Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) 0.99.6 through 0.99.7
  allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a malformed

CVE-2008-1072 (
  The TFTP dissector in Wireshark (formerly Ethereal) 0.6.0 through 0.99.7,
  when running on Ubuntu 7.10, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (crash or memory consumption) via a malformed packet, possibly
  related to a Cairo library bug.
Comment 1 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-03 01:46:23 UTC
I'm rating this B2 because since our last bug we encourage users to run Wireshark not as root. I hope this is appropriate, otherwise it'd be B1 as usual.

Peter, please bump and let's go to stabling.
Comment 2 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-03 05:25:00 UTC
Will do later today. I just want to give ppc64 and alpha arch teams some time to keyword libsmi.

wireshark-0.99.8.ebuild is finally in portage.
Comment 4 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 01:25:20 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:

amd64 stable
Comment 7 Dawid Węgliński (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 13:59:23 UTC
x86 stable
Comment 8 Dawid Węgliński (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:06:26 UTC
*** Bug 213705 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 9 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:10:35 UTC
I don't understand how a build failure is a duplicate of this bug.. But USE=kerberos results in this failing to build.
Comment 10 Dawid Węgliński (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:11:50 UTC
Readding amd64 per bug #213705. Decide whether revert it back to ~amd64 or not.
Comment 11 Olivier Crete (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:24:49 UTC
We can revert.. or just fix it...
Comment 12 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:28:26 UTC
It's not amd64 specific. It's an issue with the options passed to the configure script with certain USE flag combinations. Same issue exists on my x86 box.
Comment 13 Angelo Arrifano (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 15:55:52 UTC
I can't reproduce #213705.

net-analyzer/wireshark-0.99.8  USE="caps gtk kerberos pcre threads zlib -adns
-gcrypt -gnutls -ipv6 -lua -pcap -portaudio -profile (-selinux) -smi"

Emerges fine on this AMD64.
Comment 14 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 16:20:38 UTC
What kerberos implementation are you using?
Comment 15 Angelo Arrifano (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 16:35:31 UTC
Kerberos was not present on my system (as I don't use it). Emerging USE="kerberos" wireshark pulled in this:

app-crypt/mit-krb5-1.5.3-r1  USE="doc -ipv6 -krb4 -tcl"
Comment 16 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 16:39:17 UTC
Try heimdal:

[ebuild   R   ] app-crypt/heimdal-0.7.2-r3  USE="X berkdb ipv6 ldap ssl" 0 kB
Comment 17 Angelo Arrifano (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 16:56:35 UTC
(In reply to comment #16)
> Try heimdal:
> [ebuild   R   ] app-crypt/heimdal-0.7.2-r3  USE="X berkdb ipv6 ldap ssl" 0 kB

I can reproduce with this implementation.
Comment 18 Dawid Węgliński (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 18:22:06 UTC
Cant're reproduce it on my x86 box either.

* app-crypt/mit-krb5 [R 1.5.3-r1]
    -doc ipv6 -krb4 -tcl
* net-analyzer/wireshark [R 0.99.8] <target>
    -adns caps -gcrypt -gnutls -gtk ipv6 kerberos -lua -pcap pcre -portaudio -profile (-selinux) -smi -threads zlib

x86: what do we do?

 Try with heimdal, as suggested above...and then revert if it is really broken.  But check if it is broken with the prior stable version.  If yes, keep the stable keyword.
Comment 20 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 19:10:11 UTC
Guys, you are welcome to document all your finding in bug 213705, and please comment suggested there solution. This bug about security issue.

BTW this minor build problem should not stop stabilization. Also no need for amd64 to revert keywords - this is really small configuration issue.
Comment 21 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 21:26:59 UTC
Here we go again, compilation error fixed. Arches, please stable our refreshed ebuild.
Comment 22 Olivier Crete (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 21:37:44 UTC
amd64 already done
Comment 23 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 21:40:56 UTC
so is x86
Comment 24 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2008-03-17 23:02:01 UTC
Stable for HPPA (net-libs/libsmi too).
Comment 25 Tobias Scherbaum (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-18 18:05:42 UTC
ppc stable
Comment 26 Markus Rothe (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-19 11:45:15 UTC
ppc64 stable
Comment 27 Raúl Porcel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-19 19:22:49 UTC
uh...alpha/ia64/sparc stable
Comment 28 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-19 20:41:59 UTC
Fixed in release snapshot.
Comment 29 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-21 02:18:36 UTC
request filed
Comment 30 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-31 09:50:48 UTC
Isn't this handled in GLSA 200803-23?
Comment 31 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-31 12:56:34 UTC
true, thanks for noticing.
