ID CVE-2011-3266
Summary The proto_tree_add_item function in Wireshark 1.6.0 through 1.6.1 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.8, when the IKEv1 protocol dissector is used, allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors involving a malformed IKE packet and many items in a tree.

    description This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.6.2), fixing several security issues : The proto_tree_add_item function in Wireshark 1.6.1, when the IKEv1 protocol dissector is used, allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors involving a malformed IKE packet and many items in a tree (CVE-2011-3266). Untrusted search path vulnerability in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.9 and 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse Lua script in an unspecified directory (CVE-2011-3360). The csnStreamDissector function in epan/dissectors/packet-csn1.c in the CSN.1 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet (CVE-2011-3482). Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed capture file that leads to an invalid root tvbuff, related to a buffer exception handling vulnerability. (CVE-2011-3483). The unxorFrame function in epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c in the OpenSafety dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not properly validate a certain frame size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and application crash) via a malformed packet (CVE-2011-3484). The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 1.6.x version (1.6.2) which is not vulnerable to these issues.

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.
