Debian DLA-1226-1 : wireshark security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 105495
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that wireshark, a network protocol analyzer, contained several vulnerabilities in the dissectors for CIP Safety, IWARP_MPA, NetBIOS, Profinet I/O and AMQP, which result in denial of dervice or the execution of arbitrary code.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u6~deb7u8.
We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.
