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

Buffer overflow in the dissect_gsm_rlcmac_downlink function in epan/dissectors/packet-gsm_rlcmac.c in the GSM RLC MAC dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.10 and 1.8.x before 1.8.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed packet.
