    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200808-04 (Wireshark: Denial of Service) Multiple vulnerabilities related to memory management were discovered in the GSM SMS dissector (CVE-2008-3137), the PANA and KISMET dissectors (CVE-2008-3138), the RTMPT dissector (CVE-2008-3139), the syslog dissector (CVE-2008-3140) and the RMI dissector (CVE-2008-3141) and when reassembling fragmented packets (CVE-2008-3145). Impact : A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a specially crafted packet on a network being monitored by Wireshark or enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file, causing a Denial of Service. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.
