The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


It was discovered that Wireshark, a network traffic analyzer, contained several vulnerabilities in the dissectors for 6LoWPAN, P_MUL, RTSE, ISAKMP, TCAP, ASN.1 BER and RPCAP, which could result in denial of service.


Upgrade the wireshark packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.7-1~deb9u1.
