SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : wireshark (SUSE-SU-2017:1442-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 100539

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Wireshark was updated to version 2.2.6, which brings several new features, enhancements and bug fixes. Thses security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2017-7700: In Wireshark the NetScaler file parser could go into an infinite loop, triggered by a malformed capture file. This was addressed in wiretap/netscaler.c by ensuring a nonzero record size (bsc#1033936)

- CVE-2017-7701: In Wireshark the BGP dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-bgp.c by using a different integer data type (bsc#1033937)

- CVE-2017-7702: In Wireshark the WBXML dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wbxml.c by adding length validation (bsc#1033938)

- CVE-2017-7703: In Wireshark the IMAP dissector could crash, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-imap.c by calculating a line's end correctly (bsc#1033939)

- CVE-2017-7704: In Wireshark the DOF dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dof.c by using a different integer data type and adjusting a return value (bsc#1033940)

- CVE-2017-7705: In Wireshark the RPC over RDMA dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-rpcrdma.c by correctly checking for going beyond the maximum offset (bsc#1033941)

- CVE-2017-7745: In Wireshark the SIGCOMP dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-sigcomp.c by correcting a memory-size check (bsc#1033942)

- CVE-2017-7746: In Wireshark the SLSK dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-slsk.c by adding checks for the remaining length (bsc#1033943)

- CVE-2017-7747: In Wireshark the PacketBB dissector could crash, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-packetbb.c by restricting additions to the protocol tree (bsc#1033944)

- CVE-2017-7748: In Wireshark the WSP dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-wsp.c by adding a length check (bsc#1033945)

- CVE-2017-6014: In Wireshark a crafted or malformed STANAG 4607 capture file will cause an infinite loop and memory exhaustion. If the packet size field in a packet header is null, the offset to read from will not advance, causing continuous attempts to read the same zero length packet. This will quickly exhaust all system memory (bsc#1025913)

- CVE-2017-5596: In Wireshark the ASTERIX dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-asterix.c by changing a data type to avoid an integer overflow (bsc#1021739)

- CVE-2017-5597: In Wireshark the DHCPv6 dissector could go into a large loop, triggered by packet injection or a malformed capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dhcpv6.c by changing a data type to avoid an integer overflow (bsc#1021739)

- CVE-2016-9376: In Wireshark the OpenFlow dissector could crash with memory exhaustion, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-openflow_v5.c by ensuring that certain length values were sufficiently large (bsc#1010735)

- CVE-2016-9375: In Wireshark the DTN dissector could go into an infinite loop, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dtn.c by checking whether SDNV evaluation was successful (bsc#1010740)

- CVE-2016-9374: In Wireshark the AllJoyn dissector could crash with a buffer over-read, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-alljoyn.c by ensuring that a length variable properly tracked the state of a signature variable (bsc#1010752)

- CVE-2016-9373: In Wireshark the DCERPC dissector could crash with a use-after-free, triggered by network traffic or a capture file. This was addressed in epan/dissectors/packet-dcerpc-nt.c and epan/dissectors/packet-dcerpc-spoolss.c by using the wmem file scope for private strings (bsc#1010754)

- CVE-2016-7180: epan/dissectors/packet-ipmi-trace.c in the IPMI trace dissector in Wireshark did not properly consider whether a string is constant, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998800)

- CVE-2016-7179: Stack-based buffer overflow in epan/dissectors/packet-catapult-dct2000.c in the Catapult DCT2000 dissector in Wireshark allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998963)

- CVE-2016-7178: epan/dissectors/packet-umts_fp.c in the UMTS FP dissector in Wireshark did not ensure that memory is allocated for certain data structures, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid write access and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998964)

- CVE-2016-7177: epan/dissectors/packet-catapult-dct2000.c in the Catapult DCT2000 dissector in Wireshark did not restrict the number of channels, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998763)

- CVE-2016-7176: epan/dissectors/packet-h225.c in the H.225 dissector in Wireshark called snprintf with one of its input buffers as the output buffer, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (copy overlap and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998762)

- CVE-2016-7175: epan/dissectors/packet-qnet6.c in the QNX6 QNET dissector in Wireshark mishandled MAC address data, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted packet (bsc#998761)

- CVE-2016-6354: Heap-based buffer overflow in the yy_get_next_buffer function in Flex might have allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving num_to_read (bsc#990856).
