Critical Nessus Plugin ID 29772


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The Wireshark team reports of multiple vulnerabilities :

- Wireshark could crash when reading an MP3 file.

- Beyond Security discovered that Wireshark could loop excessively while reading a malformed DNP packet.

- Stefan Esser discovered a buffer overflow in the SSL dissector.

- The ANSI MAP dissector could be susceptible to a buffer overflow on some platforms.

- The Firebird/Interbase dissector could go into an infinite loop or crash.

- The NCP dissector could cause a crash.

- The HTTP dissector could crash on some systems while decoding chunked messages.

- The MEGACO dissector could enter a large loop and consume system resources.

- The DCP ETSI dissector could enter a large loop and consume system resources.

- Fabiodds discovered a buffer overflow in the iSeries (OS/400) Communication trace file parser.

- The PPP dissector could overflow a buffer.

- The Bluetooth SDP dissector could go into an infinite loop.

- A malformed RPC Portmap packet could cause a crash.

- The IPv6 dissector could loop excessively.

- The USB dissector could loop excessively or crash.

- The SMB dissector could crash.

- The RPL dissector could go into an infinite loop.

- The WiMAX dissector could crash due to unaligned access on some platforms.

- The CIP dissector could attempt to allocate a huge amount of memory and crash. Impact It may be possible to make Wireshark or Ethereal crash or use up available memory by injecting a purposefully malformed packet onto the wire or by convincing someone to read a malformed packet trace file.
