Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200712-23)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 30, 2007
Bug(s): #199958
ID: 200712-23

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark, allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary code and a Denial of Service.

Background

Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer with a graphical front-end.

Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/wireshark
Vulnerable: < 0.99.7
Unaffected: >= 0.99.7
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple buffer overflows and infinite loops were discovered in multiple dissector and parser components, including those for MP3 and NCP (CVE-2007-6111), PPP (CVE-2007-6112), DNP (CVE-2007-6113), SSL and iSeries (OS/400) Communication traces (CVE-2007-6114), ANSI MAP (CVE-2007-6115), Firebird/Interbase (CVE-2007-6116), HTTP (CVE-2007-6117), MEGACO (CVE-2007-6118), DCP ETSI (CVE-2007-6119), Bluetooth SDP (CVE-2007-6120), RPC Portmap (CVE-2007-6121), SMB (CVE-2007-6438), IPv6 amd USB (CVE-2007-6439), WiMAX (CVE-2007-6441), RPL (CVE-2007-6450), CIP (CVE-2007-6451). The vulnerabilities were discovered by Stefan Esser, Beyond Security, Fabiodds, Peter Leeming, Steve and ainsley.

Impact

A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets on a network being monitored with Wireshark or entice a user to open a specially crafted file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Wireshark (which might be the root user), or a Denial of Service.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/wireshark-0.99.7"
