ID CVE-2012-6054
Summary The dissect_sflow_245_address_type function in epan/dissectors/packet-sflow.c in the sFlow dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 does not properly handle length calculations for an invalid IP address type, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a packet that is neither IPv4 nor IPv6.

    description The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates : - Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive hostname information by reading pcap-ng files. (CVE-2012-6052) - epan/dissectors/packet-usb.c in the USB dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 relies on a length field to calculate an offset value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a zero value for this field. (CVE-2012-6053) - The dissect_sflow_245_address_type function in epan/dissectors/packet-sflow.c in the sFlow dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 does not properly handle length calculations for an invalid IP address type, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a packet that is neither IPv4 nor IPv6. (CVE-2012-6054) - epan/dissectors/packet-3g-a11.c in the 3GPP2 A11 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a zero value in a sub-type length field. (CVE-2012-6055) - Integer overflow in the dissect_sack_chunk function in epan/dissectors/ packet-sctp.c in the SCTP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted Duplicate TSN count. (CVE-2012-6056) - The dissect_eigrp_metric_comm function in epan/dissectors/packet-eigrp.c in the EIGRP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.4 uses the wrong data type for a certain offset value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) via a malformed packet. (CVE-2012-6057) - Integer overflow in the dissect_icmpv6 function in epan/dissectors/ packet-icmpv6.c in the ICMPv6 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted Number of Sources value. (CVE-2012-6058) - The dissect_isakmp function in epan/dissectors/packet-isakmp.c in the ISAKMP dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 uses an incorrect data structure to determine IKEv2 decryption parameters, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet. (CVE-2012-6059) - Integer overflow in the dissect_iscsi_pdu function in epan/dissectors/ packet-iscsi.c in the iSCSI dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a malformed packet. (CVE-2012-6060) - The dissect_wtp_common function in epan/dissectors/packet-wtp.c in the WTP dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 uses an incorrect data type for a certain length field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) via a crafted value in a packet. (CVE-2012-6061) - The dissect_rtcp_app function in epan/dissectors/packet-rtcp.c in the RTCP dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.12 and 1.8.x before 1.8.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted packet.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-497.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in the dissectors/parsers for PKTC, IAX2, GSM CBCH and NCP which could result in denial of service. This update also fixes many older less important issues by updating the package to the version found in Debian 8 also known as Jessie. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u6~deb7u1. We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in wireshark : Infinite and large loops in ANSI MAP, BACapp, Bluetooth HCI, IEEE 802.3, LTP, and R3 dissectors have been fixed. Discovered by Laurent Butti (http://www.wireshark.org/security/wnpa-sec-2012-08.html [CVE-2012-2392]) The DIAMETER dissector could try to allocate memory improperly and crash (http://www.wireshark.org/security/wnpa-sec-2012-09.html [CVE-2012-2393]) Wireshark could crash on SPARC processors due to misaligned memory. Discovered by Klaus Heckelmann (http://www.wireshark.org/security/wnpa-sec-2012-10.html [CVE-2012-2394]) The PPP dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.14, 1.6.x before 1.6.9, and 1.8.x before 1.8.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted packet, as demonstrated by a usbmon dump (CVE-2012-4048). epan/dissectors/packet-nfs.c in the NFS dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.14, 1.6.x before 1.6.9, and 1.8.x before 1.8.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and CPU consumption) via a crafted packet (CVE-2012-4049). The DCP ETSI dissector could trigger a zero division (CVE-2012-4285). The XTP dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2012-4288). The AFP dissector could go into a large loop (CVE-2012-4289). The RTPS2 dissector could overflow a buffer (CVE-2012-4296). The GSM RLC MAC dissector could overflow a buffer (CVE-2012-4297). The CIP dissector could exhaust system memory (CVE-2012-4291). The STUN dissector could crash (CVE-2012-4292). The EtherCAT Mailbox dissector could abort (CVE-2012-4293). The CTDB dissector could go into a large loop (CVE-2012-4290). Martin Wilck discovered an infinite loop in the DRDA dissector (CVE-2012-5239). The USB dissector could go into an infinite loop. (wnpa-sec-2012-31) The ISAKMP dissector could crash. (wnpa-sec-2012-35) The iSCSI dissector could go into an infinite loop. (wnpa-sec-2012-36) The WTP dissector could go into an infinite loop. (wnpa-sec-2012-37) The RTCP dissector could go into an infinite loop. (wnpa-sec-2012-38) The ICMPv6 dissector could go into an infinite loop. (wnpa-sec-2012-40) Infinite and large loops in the Bluetooth HCI, CSN.1, DCP-ETSI DOCSIS CM-STAUS, IEEE 802.3 Slow Protocols, MPLS, R3, RTPS, SDP, and SIP dissectors (wnpa-sec-2013-01). The CLNP dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2013-02). The DTN dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2013-03). The MS-MMC dissector (and possibly others) could crash (wnpa-sec-2013-04). The DTLS dissector could crash (wnpa-sec-2013-05). The DCP-ETSI dissector could corrupt memory (wnpa-sec-2013-07). The Wireshark dissection engine could crash (wnpa-sec-2013-08). The NTLMSSP dissector could overflow a buffer (wnpa-sec-2013-09). The sFlow dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2012-6054). The SCTP dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2012-6056). The MS-MMS dissector could crash (CVE-2013-2478). The RTPS and RTPS2 dissectors could crash (CVE-2013-2480). The Mount dissector could crash (CVE-2013-2481). The AMPQ dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2013-2482). The ACN dissector could attempt to divide by zero (CVE-2013-2483). The CIMD dissector could crash (CVE-2013-2484). The FCSP dissector could go into an infinite loop (CVE-2013-2485). The DTLS dissector could crash (CVE-2013-2488).
