  <impact type="high">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could craft a malicious network flow that would
    result in executing arbitrary code with the rights of the user running
    the Ettercap tool, which is often root.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Ettercap users should upgrade to the latest available version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/ettercap-0.7.3&quot;</code>
