Fedora 15 : wireshark-1.4.4-1.fc15 (2011-2648)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 52590
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Several security bugs were fixed in this release :

- CVE-2011-0538: memory corruption when reading a malformed pcap file

- CVE-2010-3445: stack overflow in BER dissector

- CVE-2011-1143: NULL pointer dereference causing application crash when reading malformed pcap file

- CVE-2011-1140: Multiple stack consumption vulnerabilities caused DoS via crafted SMB or CLDAP packet

- CVE-2011-1138: Off-by-one error in the dissect_6lowpan_iphc function causes application crash (Denial Of Service)

- CVE-2011-1139: Denial Of Service (application crash) via a pcap-ng file that contains a large packet-length field

- CVE-2011-0713: heap-based buffer overflow when reading malformed Nokia DCT3 phone signaling traces

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.


Update the affected wireshark package.
