  <impact type="high">
    <p>
    An attacker might be able to exploit these vulnerabilities to crash
    Ethereal or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
    running Ethereal, which could be the root user.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Ethereal users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-analyzer/ethereal-0.99.0"</code>
