Wireshark 2.0.x < 2.0.15 Multiple DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by
multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is 2.0.x
prior to 2.0.15. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of
service vulnerabilities in the IrCOMM and MSDP dissectors. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by injecting a
malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a
malformed packet trace file.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
