Description Marek Wichtowski 2004-04-28 08:54:32 UTC
Ettercap crashes (segmentation fault) when I start arp sniffing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start ettercap
2.select a host and start MAC sniffing (m key)
3.go back to the host list and without choosing a host start ARP sniffing (a key)

Actual Results:  
 Ooops !! Somewhere in the stack a pointer got crazy... 
 
 [ettercap] Segmentation Fault... 
 
=========================================================================== 
 To report this error follow these steps: 
 
  1) recompile ettercap in debug mode : 
        "configure --enable-debug && make clean && make" 
 
  2) reproduce the critical situation 
 
  3) make a report : "tar zcvf error.tar.gz ettercap_debug.log " 
 
  4) get the gdb backtrace : 
         - "gdb ettercap core" 
         - at the gdb prompt "bt" 
         - at the gdb prompt "quit" and return to the shell 
         - copy and paste this output. 
 
  5) mail us the output of gdb and the error.tar.gz

Comment 1 Michael Boman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-04 05:00:43 UTC
Has anyone reported this bug upstream? If so, what was the reply?
Comment 2 Eldad Zack (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-21 03:56:35 UTC
Please test 0.7.0_pre1, it is in portage (~x86).

Also, latest version is 0.7.0_pre2, emerges and runs (bumped from pre1)
Comment 3 Eldad Zack (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-29 13:57:45 UTC
Please test 0.7.0_rc1 now in portage.
Comment 4 Eldad Zack (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-05 17:14:50 UTC
0.7.0 is now in portage, and features a complete rewrite of the code.

Please test this release.

otherwise, by the time 0.7.0 will hit stable, I'll mark this bug cantfix. (obviously upstream won't do it)
Comment 5 Eldad Zack (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-10 02:28:35 UTC
closing bug: ettercap 0.6.x is deprecated.
