A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in tcpdump.

Software Description:
- tcpdump: command-line network traffic analyzer

Details:

Wilfried Kirsch discovered a buffer overflow in the SLIP decoder
in tcpdump. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial
of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2017-11543)

Bhargava Shastry discovered a buffer overflow in the bitfield converter
utility function bittok2str_internal() in tcpdump. A remote attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-13011)

Otto Airamo and Antti Levomaki discovered logic errors in different
protocol parsers in tcpdump that could lead to an infinite loop. A
remote attacker could use these to cause a denial of service
(application hang). CVE-2017-12989, CVE-2017-12990, CVE-2017-12995,
CVE-2017-12997)

Otto Airamo, Brian Carpenter, Yannick Formaggio, Kamil Frankowicz,
Katie Holly, Kim Gwan Yeong, Antti Levomaki, Henri Salo, and Bhargava
Shastry discovered out-of-bounds reads in muliptle protocol parsers
in tcpdump. A remote attacker could use these to cause a denial
of service (application crash). (CVE-2017-11108, CVE-2017-11541,
