Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200911-05
(Wireshark: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Wireshark:
Ryan Giobbi reported an integer overflow in wiretap/erf.c
(CVE-2009-3829).
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
dissector (CVE-2009-3551).

Impact :

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
Service.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.

Solution :

All Wireshark users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-analyzer/wireshark-1.2.3'

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.9
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
