Fedora 8 : wireshark-1.0.0-1.fc8 (2008-3040)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31829

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Upgrade to 1.0.0 fixes several security flaws (wireshark crashes, see BZ references).

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.

Solution

Update the affected wireshark package.
