Wireshark 3.6.x < 3.6.9 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 166608

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Wireshark installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 3.6.9. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the wireshark-3.6.9 advisory.

- The OPUS dissector 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. (wireshark-bug-18378)

- The USB-HID dissector could crash on Windows. 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. (wireshark- bug-18384)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Wireshark version 3.6.9 or later.
