[DSA124] DSA-124-1 mtr Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-124-1 mtr

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The authors of mtr released a new upstream version, noting a
non-exploitable buffer overflow in their ChangeLog. Przemyslaw
Frasunek, however, found an easy way to exploit this bug, which allows
a possible hacker to gain access to the raw socket, which makes IP spoofing
and other malicious network activity possible.
The problem has been fixed by the Debian maintainer in version 0.41-6
for the stable distribution of Debian by backporting the upstream fix
and in version 0.48-1 for the testing/unstable distribution.
We recommend that you upgrade your mtr package immediately.
