Title: Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200911-05)
Date: November 25, 2009
Bug(s): #285280, #290710
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark, allowing for
the remote execution of arbitrary code, or Denial of Service.
Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.
Vulnerable: < 1.2.3
Unaffected: >= 1.2.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark:
- Ryan Giobbi reported an integer overflow in wiretap/erf.c
- The vendor reported multiple unspecified
vulnerabilities in the Bluetooth L2CAP, RADIUS, and MIOP dissectors
(CVE-2009-2560), in the OpcUa dissector (CVE-2009-3241), in packet.c in
the GSM A RR dissector (CVE-2009-3242), in the TLS dissector
(CVE-2009-3243), in the Paltalk dissector (CVE-2009-3549), in the
DCERPC/NT dissector (CVE-2009-3550), and in the
dissect_negprot_response() function in packet-smb.c in the SMB
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted "erf"
file using Wireshark, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running the application. A remote
attacker could furthermore send specially crafted packets on a network
being monitored by Wireshark or entice a user to open a malformed
packet trace file using Wireshark, possibly resulting in a Denial of
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/wireshark-1.2.3"
