New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 2.2.x prior to 2.2.16 / 2.4.x prior to 2.4.8 / 2.6.x prior to 2.6.2.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the following protocol dissectors:

- MMSE

- zlib decompression

- DICOM

- BGP

- ASN.1 BER

- ISMP

- CoAP

- Bazaar

- HTTP2

- IEEE 802.11 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 2.2.16 / 2.4.8 /2.6.2 or later.
