The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is affected by
multiple issues :
- The AFS dissector could crash. (Bug 3564)
- The infiniband dissector could crash on some platforms.
- The OpcUa dissector could use excessive CPU and memory.
These vulnerabilities could result in a denial of service. 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).
