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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 52590

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

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

Solution

Update the affected wireshark package.
