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.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Wireshark 1.8 is earlier than 1.8.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Errors exist related to the USB, sFlow, EIGRP, 3GPP2 A11, SCTP, ICMPv6, iSCSI, WTP and RTCP dissectors that can allow denial of service attacks by putting the application into an infinite loop. (Bug 7787, 7789, 7800, 7801, 7802, 7844, 7858, 7869, 7889)
- An error exists in the ISAKMP dissector that can allow a malformed packet to crash the application. (Bug 7855)

- An error exists related to pcap-ng host names that can allow disclosure of sensitive information while working with multiple pcap-ng files. (wnpa-2012-30)

Solution
