Wireshark 1.10.x < 1.10.7 DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by a
denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The installed version of Wireshark 1.10.x is a version prior to
1.10.7. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service
vulnerability. A flaw exists with the RTP dissector when handling a
malformed packet that could allow a remote attacker to crash
Wireshark.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
