Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in wireshark :

Infinite and large loops in ANSI MAP, BACapp, Bluetooth HCI, IEEE
802.3, LTP, and R3 dissectors have been fixed. Discovered by Laurent
Butti (http://www.wireshark.org/security/wnpa-sec-2012-08.html
[CVE-2012-2392])

The DIAMETER dissector could try to allocate memory improperly and
crash (http://www.wireshark.org/security/wnpa-sec-2012-09.html
[CVE-2012-2393])

Wireshark could crash on SPARC processors due to misaligned memory.

before 1.4.14, 1.6.x before 1.6.9, and 1.8.x before 1.8.1 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and CPU
consumption) via a crafted packet (CVE-2012-4049).

(wnpa-sec-2012-40)

Infinite and large loops in the Bluetooth HCI, CSN.1, DCP-ETSI DOCSIS
CM-STAUS, IEEE 802.3 Slow Protocols, MPLS, R3, RTPS, SDP, and SIP
dissectors (wnpa-sec-2013-01).
