    description New Wireshark packages that fix various security vulnerabilities are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Wireshark is a program for monitoring network traffic. Several flaws were found in Wireshark's HTTP, WBXML, LDAP, and XOT protocol dissectors. Wireshark could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off the network. (CVE-2006-4805, CVE-2006-5468, CVE-2006-5469, CVE-2006-5740) A single NULL byte heap based buffer overflow was found in Wireshark's MIME Multipart dissector. Wireshark could crash or possibly execute arbitrary arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2006-4574) Users of Wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages containing Wireshark version 0.99.4, which is not vulnerable to these issues.
