ID CVE-2016-6505
Summary epan/dissectors/packet-packetbb.c in the PacketBB dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.13 and 2.x before 2.0.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via a crafted packet.

  • NASL family Windows
    NASL id WIRESHARK_2_0_5.NASL
    description The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.x prior to 2.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities : - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the CORBA IDL dissector due to improper handling of packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an application crash. Note that this vulnerability only affects 64-bit versions of Windows. (CVE-2016-6503) - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to a divide-by-zero flaw in the dissect_pbb_tlvblock() function in packet-packetbb.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an application crash. (CVE-2016-6505) - A flaw exists in the add_headers() function in packet_wsp.c that is triggered when an offset of zero is returned by the wkh_content_disposition() function. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an infinite loop, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-6506) - A denial of service vulnerability exists due to an incorrect integer data type used in the rlc_decode_li() function in packet-rlc.c. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause a long loop and excessive CPU resource consumption, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-6508) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the dissect_ldss_transfer() function in packet-ldss.c that is triggered when recreating a conversation that already exists. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an application crash. (CVE-2016-6509) - An overflow condition exists in the rlc_decode_li() function in packet-rlc.c due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause a stack-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-6510) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the proto_tree_add_text_valist_internal() function in proto.c due to improper handling of packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause a long loop and excessive CPU resource consumption. (CVE-2016-6511) - Multiple flaws exist in the MMSE, WAP, WBXML, and WSP dissectors due to improper handling of packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an infinite loop, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-6512) - A denial of service vulnerability exists in the parse_wbxml_tag_defined() function in packet-wbxml.c due to improper handling of packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted packet or packet trace file, to cause an application crash. (CVE-2016-6513) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
