Ethereal 0.10.14 Available
Ethereal version 0.10.14 was released Tuesday. It addresses vulnerabilities in the IRC, GTP, and OSPF protocol dissectors. Smart bot net IRC operators could inject evil traffic to attack security researchers looking at command and control messages. That's a great reason to not collect traffic directly with Ethereal. Instead, collect it with Tcpdump, then review it as a non-root user using Ethereal.
