Publication date: 08 Jul 2016
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 5
CVE: CVE-2016-6160


Updated tcpreplay package fixes security vulnerability:

The tcprewrite program, part of the tcpreplay suite, does not check the size of
the frames it processes. Huge frames may trigger a segmentation fault, and they
occur on interfaces with an MTU of or close to 65536. For example, the loopback
interface lo of the Linux kernel has such a value (CVE-2016-6160).
