New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

Stack consumption vulnerability in the dissect_ber_unknown function in epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in the BER dissector in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.1 and 1.2.x before 1.2.12 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) via a long string in an unknown ASN.1/BER encoded packet, as demonstrated using SNMP.
