tcpdump ISAKMP packet integer underflow

tcpdump-isakmp-integer-underflow (15679) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

The tcpdump utility is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by an integer underflow in the isakmp_id_print function. If the verbose packet display function is enabled with the -v option, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted ISAKMP packet with a malformed Identification payload to cause tcpdump to crash.
