New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote macOS / Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote macOS / Mac OS X host is 2.4.x prior to 2.4.12. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the following protocol dissectors:

- P_MUL

- RTSE

- ISAKMP

- ENIP

An attacker could cause Wireshark to crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire, or by convincing a user to read a malformed packet trace file.

Solution

Upgrade to Wireshark version 2.4.12 or later.
