    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200906-05 (Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark: David Maciejak discovered a vulnerability in packet-usb.c in the USB dissector via a malformed USB Request Block (URB) (CVE-2008-4680). Florent Drouin and David Maciejak reported an unspecified vulnerability in the Bluetooth RFCOMM dissector (CVE-2008-4681). A malformed Tamos CommView capture file (aka .ncf file) with an 'unknown/unexpected packet type' triggers a failed assertion in wtap.c (CVE-2008-4682). An unchecked packet length parameter in the dissect_btacl() function in packet-bthci_acl.c in the Bluetooth ACL dissector causes an erroneous tvb_memcpy() call (CVE-2008-4683). A vulnerability where packet-frame does not properly handle exceptions thrown by post dissectors caused by a certain series of packets (CVE-2008-4684). Mike Davies reported a use-after-free vulnerability in the dissect_q931_cause_ie() function in packet-q931.c in the Q.931 dissector via certain packets that trigger an exception (CVE-2008-4685). The Security Vulnerability Research Team of Bkis reported that the SMTP dissector could consume excessive amounts of CPU and memory (CVE-2008-5285). The vendor reported that the WLCCP dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2008-6472). babi discovered a buffer overflow in wiretap/netscreen.c via a malformed NetScreen snoop file (CVE-2009-0599). A specially crafted Tektronix K12 text capture file can cause an application crash (CVE-2009-0600). A format string vulnerability via format string specifiers in the HOME environment variable (CVE-2009-0601). THCX Labs reported a format string vulnerability in the PROFINET/DCP (PN-DCP) dissector via a PN-DCP packet with format string specifiers in the station name (CVE-2009-1210). An unspecified vulnerability with unknown impact and attack vectors (CVE-2009-1266). Marty Adkins and Chris Maynard discovered a parsing error in the dissector for the Check Point High-Availability Protocol (CPHAP) (CVE-2009-1268). Magnus Homann discovered a parsing error when loading a Tektronix .rf5 file (CVE-2009-1269). The vendor reported that the PCNFSD dissector could crash (CVE-2009-1829). Impact : A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending specially crafted packets on a network being monitored by Wireshark or by enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file which can trigger a Denial of Service (application crash or excessive CPU and memory usage) and possibly allow for the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Wireshark. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Wireshark network traffic analyzer, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2560 A NULL pointer dereference was found in the RADIUS dissector. - CVE-2009-3550 A NULL pointer dereference was found in the DCERP/NT dissector. - CVE-2009-3829 An integer overflow was discovered in the ERF parser. This update also includes fixes for three minor issues (CVE-2008-1829, CVE-2009-2562, CVE-2009-3241 ), which were scheduled for the next stable point update. Also CVE-2009-1268 was fixed for Etch. Since this security update was issued prior to the release of the point update, the fixes were included.

    description Updated wireshark packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5. 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. Wireshark was previously known as Ethereal. A format string flaw was found in Wireshark. If Wireshark read a malformed packet off a network or opened a malicious dump file, it could crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code as the user running Wireshark. (CVE-2009-1210) Several denial of service flaws were found in Wireshark. Wireshark could crash or stop responding if it read a malformed packet off a network, or opened a malicious dump file. (CVE-2009-1268, CVE-2009-1269, CVE-2009-1829) Users of wireshark should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Wireshark version 1.0.8, and resolve these issues. All running instances of Wireshark must be restarted for the update to take effect.
