Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that wireshark, a network protocol analyzer, contained several vulnerabilities that could result in infinite loops in different dissectors. Other issues are related to crash in dissectors that are caused by special crafted and malformed packets.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u6~deb7u10.

We recommend that you upgrade your wireshark packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
