Debian DLA-1226-1 : wireshark security update

This script is Copyright (C) 2018 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description :

It was discovered that wireshark, a network protocol analyzer,
contained several vulnerabilities in the dissectors for CIP Safety,
IWARP_MPA, NetBIOS, Profinet I/O and AMQP, which result in denial of
dervice or the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version
1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u6~deb7u8.

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description
block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues.
