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: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral issues in wireshark, a tool that captures and analyzes packets off the wire, have been found by different people. These are basically issues with length checks or invalid memory access in different dissectors. This could result in infinite loops or crashes by malicious packets.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 1.12.1+g01b65bf-4+deb8u16.
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.
