CVE-2013-3557

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

The dissect_ber_choice function in epan/dissectors/packet-ber.c in the ASN.1 BER dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.15 and 1.8.x before 1.8.7 does not properly initialize a certain variable, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet.
