medium Nessus Plugin ID 65253
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 1.6 is earlier than 1.6.14. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Errors exist in the FCSP, AMPQ, SCTP, and sFlow dissector that could lead to an infinite loop resulting in a denial of service. (Bugs 7789, 7802, 8337, 8359)

- Errors exist in the CIMD, DTLS, Mount, MS-MMS, RTPS, and RTPS2 that could allow them to crash.
(Bugs 8382, 8332, 8335, 8346, 8380)

- The ACN dissector can attempt a divide by zero operation that could lead to an application crash.
(Bug 8340)

Solution

Upgrade to Wireshark version 1.6.14 or later.
