Advisories MDVSA-2010:242: wireshark


Recommended Posts

This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.2.13),

fixing one security issue:


Heap-based buffer overflow in the dissect_ldss_transfer function

(epan/dissectors/packet-ldss.c) in the LDSS dissector in Wireshark

1.2.0 through 1.2.12 and 1.4.0 through 1.4.1 allows remote attackers

to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary

code via an LDSS packet with a long digest line that triggers memory

corruption (CVE-2010-4300).
