Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : wireshark (MDVSA-2011:138)

High Nessus Plugin ID 61928

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This advisory updates wireshark to the latest version (1.6.2), fixing several security issues :

The proto_tree_add_item function in Wireshark 1.6.1, when the IKEv1 protocol dissector is used, allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via vectors involving a malformed IKE packet and many items in a tree (CVE-2011-3266).

Untrusted search path vulnerability in Wireshark 1.4.x before 1.4.9 and 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse Lua script in an unspecified directory (CVE-2011-3360).

The csnStreamDissector function in epan/dissectors/packet-csn1.c in the CSN.1 dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed packet (CVE-2011-3482).

Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a malformed capture file that leads to an invalid root tvbuff, related to a buffer exception handling vulnerability. (CVE-2011-3483).

The unxorFrame function in epan/dissectors/packet-opensafety.c in the OpenSafety dissector in Wireshark 1.6.x before 1.6.2 does not properly validate a certain frame size, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (loop and application crash) via a malformed packet (CVE-2011-3484).

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest 1.6.x version (1.6.2) which is not vulnerable to these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
