Snort TCPDUMP security issue
there might be a security risk in tcpdump which is shown below:
Is the bsd system (pfsense) affected by this problem with the tcpdump interface ?
Thanks in advance.
Doubt it. That exploit appears to target bgp and it is geared against linux? The exploit will not even compile on a FreeBSD box so I cannot check it (and I do not use linux).
So please have a look:
I already mentioned it, now there is an entry in freebsd-sec list.
Can you please comment ?
We will create a new fix as soon as FreeBSD commits the fix to the security branches.
Please test this fix by uploading to System -> Firmware update
If it works okay for you I will release the update ASAP. PS: after installation please verify that your filter logs show up in Diagnostics -> System Logs
