The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for wireshark to version 2.2.9 fixes several issues. These
security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2017-13767: The MSDP dissector could have gone into
an infinite loop. This was addressed by adding length
- CVE-2017-13766: The Profinet I/O dissector could have
crash with an out-of-bounds write. This was addressed by
adding string validation (bsc#1056249).
- CVE-2017-13765: The IrCOMM dissector had a buffer
over-read and application crash. This was addressed by
adding length validation (bsc#1056251).
- CVE-2017-9766: PROFINET IO data with a high recursion
depth allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (stack exhaustion) in the dissect_IODWriteReq
- CVE-2017-9617: Deeply nested DAAP data may have cause
stack exhaustion (uncontrolled recursion) in the
dissect_daap_one_tag function in the DAAP dissector
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
