The remote Windows host contains an application that allows arbitrary code execution.
The installed version of Wireshark or Ethereal is 1.2.0 - 1.2.10 or 0.8.4 - 1.0.15. Such versions are affected by the following vulnerability : - The application uses a fixed path to look for specific files or libraries, such as for 'airpcap.dll', and this path includes directories that may not be trusted or under user control. If a malicious DLL with the same name as a required DLL is located in the application's current working directory, the malicious DLL will be loaded. (Bug 5133)
Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.2.11 / 1.0.16 or later.
