- Wireshark could crash while reading iSeries capture files
- Wireshark could exhaust system memory while reading a malformed DCP ETSI packet

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
