Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities was found and corrected in Wireshark :

The ieee802154_map_rec function in epan/dissectors/packet-ieee802154.c
in the IEEE 802.15.4 dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and
1.10.x before 1.10.3 uses an incorrect pointer chain, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via
a crafted packet (CVE-2013-6336).

Unspecified vulnerability in the NBAP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x
before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet
(CVE-2013-6337).

The dissect_sip_common function in epan/dissectors/packet-sip.c in the
SIP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before
1.10.3 does not properly initialize a data structure, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via
a crafted packet (CVE-2013-6338).

The dissect_openwire_type function in
epan/dissectors/packet-openwire.c in the OpenWire dissector in
Wireshark 1.8.x before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (loop) via a crafted packet
(CVE-2013-6339).

epan/dissectors/packet-tcp.c in the TCP dissector in Wireshark 1.8.x
before 1.8.11 and 1.10.x before 1.10.3 does not properly determine the
amount of remaining data, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet
(CVE-2013-6340).

This advisory provides the latest version of Wireshark (1.8.11) which
is not vulnerable to these issues.
