IEEE 802.3, LTP, and R3 that can allow specially crafted
packets to cause the application to enter infinite or
very large loops making it unavailable. (Issues 6805,

dissector that can allow specially crafted packets to
cause improper memory allocation leading to application
crashes. (Issue 7138)

- An unspecified error can cause the application to crash
due to a memory misalignment. Note, for Windows, this
issue only occurs on the Itanium platform. (Issue 7221)
