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

Off-by-one error in epan/dissectors/packet-rsl.c in the RSL dissector in Wireshark 1.12.x before 1.12.10 and 2.0.x before 2.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted packet that triggers a 0xff tag value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2016-2530.
