    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201110-02 (Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets on a network being monitored by Wireshark, entice a user to open a malformed packet trace file using Wireshark, or deploy a specially crafted Lua script for use by Wireshark, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code, or a Denial of Service condition. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.
