Title: Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201006-05)
Date: June 01, 2010
Bug(s): #297388, #318935
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in Wireshark.
Wireshark is a versatile network protocol analyzer.
Vulnerable: < 1.2.8-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.2.8-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in the Daintree SNA file parser,
the SMB, SMB2, IPMI, and DOCSIS dissectors. For further information
please consult the CVE entries referenced below.
A remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service and possibly execute
arbitrary code via crafted packets or malformed packet trace files.
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-1.2.8-r1"
