Awaiting Analysis

This vulnerability is currently awaiting analysis.


The gtkui_conf_read function in src/interfaces/gtk/ec_gtk_conf.c in Ettercap 0.7.3, when the GTK interface is used, does not ensure that the contents of the .ettercap_gtk file are controlled by the root user, which allows local users to conduct stack-based buffer overflow attacks and possibly execute arbitrary code, cause a denial of service (memory consumption), or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted lines in this file.
