Title: Wireshark: Denial of Service (GLSA 200808-04)
Date: August 06, 2008
Bug(s): #230411, #231587
Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in
Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer with a graphical front-end.
Vulnerable: < 1.0.2
Unaffected: >= 1.0.2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities related to memory management were discovered
in the GSM SMS dissector (CVE-2008-3137), the PANA and KISMET
dissectors (CVE-2008-3138), the RTMPT dissector (CVE-2008-3139), the
syslog dissector (CVE-2008-3140) and the RMI dissector (CVE-2008-3141)
and when reassembling fragmented packets (CVE-2008-3145).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by sending a
specially crafted packet on a network being monitored by Wireshark or
enticing a user to read a malformed packet trace file, causing a Denial
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-1.0.2"
