Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Wireshark: Denial of Service (GLSA 200909-16)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 13, 2009
Bug(s): #278564
ID: 200909-16

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark which allow for
Denial of Service.


Background


Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.


Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/wireshark
Vulnerable: < 1.2.1
Unaffected: >= 1.2.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Wireshark:
  • A
    buffer overflow in the IPMI dissector related to an array index error
    (CVE-2009-2559).
  • Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the
    Bluetooth L2CAP, RADIUS, and MIOP dissectors (CVE-2009-2560).
  • An unspecified vulnerability in the sFlow dissector
    (CVE-2009-2561).
  • An unspecified vulnerability in the AFS
    dissector (CVE-2009-2562).
  • An unspecified vulnerability in the
    Infiniband dissector when running on unspecified platforms
    (CVE-2009-2563).


Impact


A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending
specially crafted packets on a network being monitored by Wireshark or
by enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file to cause 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-1.2.1"
