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-based buffer overflow in the DECT dissector in epan/dissectors/packet-dect.c in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.5 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted .pcap file.
