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 prior to 2.6.7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the wireshark-2.6.7 advisory.

- The ASN.1 BER and related dissectors could crash. It may be possible to make Wireshark crash by injecting a malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file. (CVE-2019-9209)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution
