The remote Windows host has an application installed that is affected
by a denial of service vulnerability.
The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is
1.12.x prior to 1.12.8. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of
service vulnerability due to a flaw in the pcapng file parser that is
triggered when copying an interface filter. A remote attacker can
exploit this, via a specially crafted copy routine packet, to crash
the file parser.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issues but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
