<p>Ettercap is a suite of tools for content filtering, sniffing and man in
the middle attacks on a LAN.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Ettercap:</p>
<li>Ettercap does not handle temporary files securely (CVE-2010-3843).</li>
<li>A format string flaw in Ettercap could cause a buffer overflow
<li>A stack-based buffer overflow exists in Ettercap (CVE-2013-0722).</li>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to load a specially crafted
configuration file using Ettercap, possibly resulting in execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service
<p>A local attacker could perform symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user running the application.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Ettercap users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-analyzer/ettercap-"
