Description :

Various security problems were fixed in the wireshark 0.99.6 release,
which were backported to ethereal (predecessor of wireshark) :

- Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via a crafted chunked encoding in an
HTTP response, possibly related to a zero-length
payload. (CVE-2007-3389)

- Wireshark when running on certain systems, allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
via crafted iSeries capture files that trigger a
SIGTRAP. (CVE-2007-3390)

- Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption) via a malformed DCP ETSI
packet that triggers an infinite loop. (CVE-2007-3391)

- Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service via malformed (1) SSL or (2) MMS packets that
trigger an infinite loop. (CVE-2007-3392)

- Off-by-one error in the DHCP/BOOTP dissector in
Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) via crafted DHCP-over-DOCSIS packets.
