Wireshark 2.2.x < 2.2.10 Multiple DoS (MacOS)

high Nessus Plugin ID 103982


An application installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.


The version of Wireshark installed on the remote MacOS(X) host is 2.2.x prior to 2.2.10. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the DMP, BT ATT and MBIM dissectors. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.

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


Upgrade to Wireshark version 2.2.10 or later.
