Wireshark / Ethereal 0.9.2 to 1.2.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 40335
The remote host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is affected by multiple issues : - The IPMI dissector could overrun a buffer. (Bug 3559) - The AFS dissector could crash. (Bug 3564) - The Infiniband dissector could crash on some platforms. - The Bluetooth L2CAP dissector could crash. (Bug 3572) - The RADIUS dissector could crash. (Bug 3578) - The MIOP dissector could crash. (Bug 3652) - The sFlow dissector could use excessive CPU and memory. (Bug 3570) These vulnerabilities could result in a denial of service, or possibly arbitrary code execution. A remote attacker could exploit these issues by tricking a user into opening a maliciously crafted capture file. Additionally, if Wireshark is running in promiscuous mode, one of these issues could be exploited remotely (from the same network segment).
