Wireshark / Ethereal 0.9.2 to 1.2.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has an application that is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is affected by
multiple issues :

- The IPMI dissector could overrun a buffer. (Bug 3559)

- The AFS dissector could crash. (Bug 3564)

- The Infiniband dissector could crash on some platforms.

- The Bluetooth L2CAP dissector could crash. (Bug 3572)

- The RADIUS dissector could crash. (Bug 3578)

- The MIOP dissector could crash. (Bug 3652)

- The sFlow dissector could use excessive CPU and memory.
(Bug 3570)

These vulnerabilities could result in a denial of service, or
possibly arbitrary code execution. A remote attacker could exploit
these issues by tricking a user into opening a maliciously crafted
capture file. Additionally, if Wireshark is running in promiscuous
mode, one of these issues could be exploited remotely (from the same
network segment).
